Monty Hall lived with heart disease for years, according to information in his death certificate, The Blast reported.

The legendary "Let's Make a Deal" gameshow host died on Sept. 30 at age 96 of cardiac arrest. The Blast originally reported that the death certificate said he had heart disease for 75 years. However, family members told the publication that there was an error in the report, which should have said he carried the disease for 7.5 years.

According to his death certificate, Hall underwent an aortic valve replacement several months before his death and was also battling Crohn's disease as well as the end stages of renal disease.

News of his prevalent illness has been kept under wraps until now, but a statement released by his daughter upon his death suggests the Canadian-born star preferred to be remembered for his contributions to TV and not his sickness.

"I would love Monty Hall to be remembered for being a television pioneer — 7 decades in the business," Sharaon Hall wrote of her father, Deadline noted. "And as a philanthropist — having used his fame to raise close to a billion dollars for charitable causes."

Monty Hall's career began in radio and later branched out to television, leading to the creation of "Let's Make a Deal," People magazine noted.

He hosted the program until 1986, but a revamped version of the show is currently airing on CBS and is hosted by actor and comedian Wayne Brady.

In addition to his successful career, Monty Hall was also known for his philanthropic efforts. He sat on the boards of various charity organizations and his contributions earned him over 500 awards, according to his bio on the "Let's Make a Deal" website.

Monty Hall is survived by three children and five grandchildren.
