As well as starring on the TV show and in films such as The Big Short, the late comedian has been a vocal supporter of the medical profession, having also donated his share of the proceeds from his comedy specials to the Medical Professionals’ Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
While Monroe was still alive, the retired comic was not only an active supporter of his medical profession and was often a frequent presenter on television, but also an advocate for patients’ rights in the public eye.
The late comedian is survived by his wife, Carol; daughters, Megan, who is a clinical psychologist, and Lola, and two sons, Noah, now 13, and Jordan, now 9.
The former US President was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and graduated from Yale University in 1958.
In 1972 he became the youngest person ever to receive a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Monroe became the first African-American to hold the White House in his first term in 1993, when he was elected as the 42nd President of the United States.
He also served as Secretary of State and US Ambassador to the United Nations, was appointed US Secretary of Education in 1995, and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.
He died in January 2018.
