The world recently lost the incredible musician Eddie Van Halen. His son Wolfgang is dealing with the painful loss of losing a parent. To cope, he has been sharing some old family photos, some including his mother and Eddie’s ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli.
Wolfgang and his father were particularly close as they often toured together. Wolfgang toured with Van Halen since he was about 16 years old. He is now 29 years old and is an accomplished musician, following in his father’s footsteps.

Eddie’s ex-wife Valerie and current wife Janie Liszewski also shared touching images and tributes to Eddie. Valerie shared a black and white image of herself, Eddie, and a very young Wolfgang. She wrote, “40 years ago my life changed forever when I met you. You gave me the one true light in my life, our son, Wolfgang. Through all your challenging treatments for lung cancer, you kept your gorgeous spirit and that impish grin. I’m so grateful Wolfie and I were able to hold you in your last moments. I will see you in our next life my love.”
Sending our condolences to Wolfgang and the family.
