Robert Redford's Son James Dead of Cancer at 58

She later confirmed to The Salt Lake Tribune that her husband had died due to bile-duct cancer in his liver which had been discovered while waiting for a transplant last November.

His wife of 32 years, Kyle, shared the news of his death online, alongside pictures of the couple and their two children.

He wrote: 'Jamie died today.

On Monday morning, his wife Kyle went to Twitter to post a photo gallery of the filmmaker and worker to remember his life.

"Jamie was a fierce advocate for the power of storytelling to drive impact on the issues that matter most, critical work that he did through @redfordcenter and in his own storytelling", the institute posted, in part. "He lived an exquisite, impactful life & was cherished by many", Kyle wrote in a tweet, which included a number of household photographs.

While in graduate school, James was diagnosed with colitis, which leads to swelling in the colon, and sclerosis cholangitis, an autoimmune disease that affected his liver, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. "I don't know what we would've done [without] them over the past 2 [years]".

Even after receiving two liver transplants in 1993, he started fighting for his health from an early age.

After undergoing two liver transplants, he launched the James Redford Institute for Transplant Awareness, a nonprofit seeking to educate the public about the need for organ and tissue donation. In 2005, he and his father founded The Redford Center, a non-profit organization that produces films and provides grant money to environmental filmmakers.

He was Robert's third child with his ex-wife Lola Van Wagenen, who he shared four children with.

It is with profound sadness that we grieve the loss of James Redford, our Co-Founder, our inspiration and our friend. "He approached everything he did with kindness and warmth, and an openness that spread itself easily among others". He was a deadly defender of the natural world and believed that everyone deserved a healthy environment in which they could succeed and play.

In 2014 he produced Paper Tigers and in 2016 Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope.

At the time of his death, his wife said he was finishing a documentary called Where the Past Begins, which was about The Joy Luck Club author Amy Tan for PBS' American Masters.

Bond: James and Father Robert were seen at the HBO premiere of The Kindness Of Strangers in September 1999.
