'My Three Sons' Star Don Grady Dies at 68, Co-Star Mourns His Passing


Barry Livingston, who shared screen with Grady on 'My Three Sons', remembers his late friend as 'an inspiration to me in so many ways.'

Don Grady passed away on Wednesday, June 27 in Thousand Oaks, California. The 68-year-old actor, who played one of the sons on classic sitcom "My Three Sons" and became one of the Mickey Mouse Club's original Mouseketeers, died after a long battle against cancer.

His "My Three Sons" co-star Barry Livingston offered condolence on his Facebook. "Sad, sad day. My dear friend and TV brother, Don Grady, passed away today. He was an inspiration to me in so many ways and his impact on my life is indelible. I will miss him greatly," he wrote.

Grady appeared on numerous TV shows including "The Eleventh Hour", "The Rifleman", "The Restless Gun", "The Lucy Show", "Simon and Simon" and "Wagon Train". He pursued a musical career after "My Three Sons" ended in 1972 after its 12th season.

He released an album called "Homegrown" in 1973, and followed it up with a collection of songs about baby boomer generation in "Boomer: JazRokPop" almost 35 years later. His music was also featured in 1991 comedy movie "Switch" and served as a theme song for "The Phil Donahue Show".

Grady is survived by his wife Ginny, whom he met at Disneyland and married in 1985, as well as two children, Joey and Tessa.
