His daughter from Cynthia Stone put on good words on her actor father who died of natural causes at the age of 88.


Acting legend Cliff Robertson passed away just a day after his 88th birthday on September 9. The actor who won an Oscar for playing a mentally disabled man in 1968's "Charly" died of natural causes in Stony Brook, Long Island.

"My father was a loving father, devoted friend, dedicated professional and honorable man," daughter Stephanie Saunders said in a statement. "He stood by his family, friends, and colleagues through good times and bad. He made a difference in all our lives and made our world a better place. We will all miss him terribly."

Robertson was also known as young John F. Kennedy in "PT 109". But in recent years, he was recognized as Uncle Ben in the "Spider-Man" movies.

A funeral for the actor is set to be held on Friday, September 16 in East Hampton, The Associated Press reported.
