René Angélil, loving husband of Celine Dion, has passed away after a long battle with cancer.  The two, who were coming on nearly 22 years of marriage, were dear friends of Larry & Shawn King. When Larry heard of Rene's passing, he was very upset and said the following:

"So sorry to hear of René Angélil's passing, Celine Dion's husband. He was a lovely man, a great father, a wonderful person & dear friend." - Larry King
