I asked my mom about him and apparently she had some mad crush on him back in the day. RIP.

Loved that show when I was a little girl (somehow the 80s had lots of 50s and 60s re-runs on all day)

Hope he went peacefully. RIP Robbie

Don Grady was wonderful. Growing up, he and his TV family gave me a respit from my family of origin and all its disfunction. I loved watching him and have missed him ever since. Long live Don Grady.

So sad to hear of Don Grady's passing. His mother, Mary Grady, was my children's agent years ago. Hopefully she is still alove and well, and my condolances go out to her, first having lost her daughter and now her son.

I remember Don on My Three Sons. That was when sitcoms were more wholesome instead of some of the garbage on these days.
