Don Grady, who is perhaps best known for playing the middle son on the popular 60s sitcom My Three Sons, has died. The Hollywood Reporter reports Grady died of cancer Wednesday in Thousand Oaks, California. No other details on his death were immediately available. Grady was 68.
Before beginning his stint at age 16 as Robbie Douglas on My Three Sons, Grady was a Mouseketeer on Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club for three years. He landed the role of Robbie in 1960 and remained with the show until 1971. Fred MacMurray played his widowed father Steve Douglas while Tim Considine and Stanley Livingston played sons Mike and Chip. Mike was written out of the show and replaced by adopted son Ernie, played by Barry Livingston.
After leaving My Three Sons, Grady pursued a music career. He went on to compose music for movies and TV shows, including The Phil Donahue Show, Skin Deep and Switch.
Grady is survived by his second wife and their two children, as well as his mother and one of his sisters.
