Rob passed away at the age of 46. He was married to his longtime wife, Renata Brejniak and had two children.
Ford was a bombastic and larger-than-life personality who spoke bluntly, traits that helped him craft an image as a champion of the working class.
When running for mayor, he campaigned as an anti-politician who would cut the size of government and stand up to what he called "big-city elites."
"Toronto's government has grown bloated and wasteful," he said in a campaign video. "It's time to stop the gravy train that provides luxuries and perks to politicians and rich contracts to their friends."
Before his death, Ford mentioned his sins had finally caught up to him. He had no regrets about his troubles. He was a real class act to the people of Toronto.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ordered Canadian flags lowered in his honor.
