LOS ANGELES — Televangelist Robert H. Schuller, the 88-year-old founder of the Crystal Cathedral Ministries, died Thursday.

Schuller, who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2013, died Thursday morning at a skilled nursing facility in Artesia, his daughter, Carol Milner, told the Los Angeles Times.

He had not been undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments since his wife, Arvella Schuller, died in February 2014, the Orange County Register reported. Earlier this year, family members said they were pleasantly surprised with his “amazing” recovery despite the absence of treatment.

Donna Schuller told the Register earlier this week that her father-in- law was not on life support and was breathing on his own, but he was extremely weak because has not “eaten for several days.” He was asleep most of the time, but seemed to be at peace, Donna Schuller said.
