Don Grady, who was one of television’s most beloved big brothers as Robbie Douglas
on the long-running 1960s hit “My Three Sons,” died Wednesday. He was 68.
His “My Three Sons” co-star Barry Livingston, who played youngest brother Ernie, confirmed Mr. Grady’s death to the Associated Press
. Livingston said Mr. Grady had been suffering from cancer and receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks (Ventura County). But the exact cause and place of death were not immediately clear.
“It’s the oldest cliche in the world when TV brothers start referring to each other like biological brothers, but he was the oldest, and somebody I looked up to and learned from a great deal about life,” Livingston said.
