The songwriter, whose career spanned six decades, passed away at a Nashville-area facility for Alzheimer’s patients, TMZ reports. The “Gentle on My Mind” singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2011 after suffering from memory loss for years, and filmed a 2014 documentary, Glen Campbell… I’ll Be Me, which chronicled his battle with the disease.

He is survived by his wife, Kim Campbell, and their three children, Cal, Shannon and Ashley. He also had five children from previous marriages, Debby, Kelli, Travis, Kane and Dillion, as well as ten grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren.

Ashley previously told Rolling Stone Country in May that her dad was happy in his final few months. “Little glimpses of him will come back every now and then, and it just makes me so happy,” she said. “It could be confusion and anger a lot of the time, which is the case for a lot of peeple I’ve seen. But for him he’s just happy every day, smiles, he enjoys life and he enjoys being around people — and he loves a good piece of cake.”
