Two of the family members who Bing was survived by are his daughter, Kira Bonder, and his son, Damian, whom he shares with his ex, Elizabeth Hurley.
Damian took to Instagram to thank everyone who has reached out ever since his dad died. For him, the situation is bizarre and confusing.
Hurley also remembered Bing fondly in a sweet tribute, which she shared on her Instagram page. She described her late ex as a sweet and kind man with whom she had happy times.
She revealed that the news of his death saddened her. The two had some rough times, but all that mattered to her was the good memories that they shared.
"...It is a terrible end... I'm posting these pictures because... it's the good, wonderful memories...that matter."
Steve Bing was found dead at the basement of a lavish apartment building in California. He was well known for being the scriptwriter of "Kangaroos Jack" and for his work in producing films like "Every Breath."
He was also a financier and the founder of Shangri-la Entertainment. Steve was the grandson of Leo Bing from whom he inherited a $600 real estate fortune at the age of 18. Bing was very generous with his wealth, and he will be greatly missed.
