Actor Don Grady, best known for his role in the 1960s sitcom My Three Sons, has passed away at the age of 68. Grady had reportedly been battling cancer.

Grady, born Don Louis Agrati, began acting in the late 1950s. He was an original member of the Mouseketeers when The Mickey Mouse Club began airing in 1955. His most well-known role is as Robbie Douglas on My Three Sons, which aired from 1960-1971.

Following the end of My Three Sons, Grady pursued a career in music, where he made a name for himself writing the theme music to various movies and television shows, including The Phil Donahue Show. He also released two studio albums – Homegrown in 1973 and Boomer: JazRokPop in 2008.

    What a shock. It’s almost like losing a family member. I know that I’ll be sad today. “My Three Sons” was the show to watch. Too bad TV Land doesn’t show them again. We the viewers keep losing from TV Land. Hope TV Land would bring out “My Three Sons” for a week-end. However, I will not hold my breath. It’s sad.

    I met Don Grady back in the sixties, I was barely sixteen years old when he sang in a band at the Griffth Park for an Charity Event at a catholic church. My sister was the Charity Director of this church and invited me to meet Don Grady and the band and Don put me on stage because my name was Gloria and he asked me if I would sing with him “Gloria” and I did. I also met his manager who was wearing black leather jack and jeans but I really didn’t remember his name. All I knew of what took place and had an incredible time meeting Don and his band back in the sixties. Sincerey yours, Gigi
