Don Grady (above, right), who played big brother Robbie Douglas on 1960s sitcom "My Three Sons," died Wednesday (June 27) at the age of 68. His death was confirmed to the AP by Barry Livingston (above, middle), who played youngest brother Ernie on the show. The two are pictured above with fellow on-screen brother Stanley Livingston (left).
Livingston says Grady had been suffering from cancer and was receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
"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," says Livingston.
A native of San Diego, Grady was cast as a young Mouseketeer on the classic kids' afternoon show, The Mickey Mouse Club. After that, he appeared on several TV shows of the day like Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater, Wagon Train, The Rifleman, and The Eleventh Hour.
He was then cast as the middle brother, Robbie Douglas, on My Three Sons. Movie star Fred MacMurray played his dad with Stanley Livingston and Tim Considine (another Mickey Mouse Club vet) playing his younger and older brothers respectively. I Love Lucy's William Frawley rounded out the cast as maternal grandfather "Bub" O'Casey.
