Jackson's wife Katherine Jackson, along with their children and grandchildren, traveled to Las Vegas, to pay their final respects.

TMZ reported on the news stating that Jackson had been ill with cancer for quite a long time, but not a lot of details regarding the said illness were revealed.

Joe Jackson seemed to have realized that his time had come to an end, as just three days earlier he had posted a cryptic message on Twitter, in which he recognized that he had lived a long life.

He added that whether you like it or not, the sun sets when the time comes, which eerily predicted his near future.
