Buzz Aldrin had four marriages and three children with his first wife.

On December 29, 1954, he married Joan Archer, with whom he was married for 20

years and had three children: James, Janice, and Andrew Aldrin.

Beverly Van Zile was Aldren’s second wife, whom he married on December 31, 1975.

After three years, they divorced in 1978.

His third marriage was also to Lois Driggs Cannon. On February 14, 1988, they married, and in December 2012, they divorced.

With a moon rock, Buzz Aldrin proposed to Lois.

Aldrin’s grandchild, Jeffrey Schuss, was born to his daughter Janice.

He has three great-grandsons, Nathaniel, Benjamin, and Archer, as well as one great-granddaughter, Kaia Nicole.

In 2018, the former astronaut was embroiled in a court battle with his children Janice and Andrew, as well as his former business manager Christina Korp.

They claimed that Aldrin was intellectually damaged by dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and that his new pals were financially and socially manipulating him.

They wanted to be identified as his legal guardians. However, in June,

Aldrin retaliated by launching a lawsuit against the three as well as the family’s companies and organizations.

The matter was resolved when his children withdrew their petition and he dismissed the case in March 2019.

Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr. was born to Marion Aldrin (née Moon) and Edwin Eugene Aldrin Sr. in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, USA.

Edwin Sr. was an Army aviator during World War I and the assistant commandant of the test pilot school at McCook Field, Ohio, from 1919 to 1922.

He left the Army in 1928 to work as an executive at Standard Oil.

Madeleine and Fay Ann Aldrin were Aldrin’s two elder sisters.

His nickname, which became his formal first name in 1988, arose

from Fay mispronouncing “brother” as “buzzer,” which was reduced to “Buzz.”

He earned a mechanical engineering degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1951.

Aldrin earned a Doctor of Science in astronautics from MIT before becoming NASA’s first astronaut with a doctorate.
