Tony Bennett is survived by his four children.

Tony has been married three times. His first marriage was to Patricia Beach, who he married in 1952. When the two were married, thousands of fans gathered outside the cathedral in mock mourning because Tony was officially off the market. Tony and Patricia had two sons, D'Andrea, who went by Danny and was born in 1954, and Daegal, who went by Dae and was born in 1955.

Tony and Patricia separated in 1965, citing Tony's constant time on the road as one of the reasons for the end of their marriage. In 1969, Patricia sued Tony for adultery, and the two were officially divorced in 1971.
