Dr. Brock died March 10, 2015, leaving a sizable estate. He is survived by his wife, seven children he and his former wife adopted, and two stepdaughters. Dr. Brock’s 2013 Will was admitted to probate court, and it divided his estate among his wife, his stepdaughters, and his eldest two children from his former marriage. The 2013 Will expressly excluded Dr. Brock’s five other children, and they brought a lawsuit contesting the will.
