Speaking to Will Lavin, he said: “I came to a point in my life where I was like, ‘I can either just give up and fucking die or I can fucking fight for what I want.’ And I chose to fight for what I wanted. I wanted to have good relationships. I wanted to love the people in my life. I wanted to enjoy my job.

“I wanted to enjoy being a dad and having friends and just getting up in the morning. Because that was a struggle for me.”

Bennington is survived by his wife and six children. RIP.
