FAMILY MAN: Junior married his one true love, companion and friend, Ruby Caldwell in 1960. During their 53-year marriage, they had six children, and 12 grandchildren. When asked why some of his contemporaries, other male entertainers, struggled and didn’t have the support they needed during their elderly years, Junior once commented, “Marrying the right woman, a good woman, like Ruby, makes all the difference. I married the right one.”
