It’s a sad day for many. We have learned that the beloved star has passed away. He was 67 years old.
A rep for the Partridge Family star released an official statement saying: ‘On behalf of the Cassidy family, it’s with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of our father, uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy. David died surrounded by the ones he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for too long. Thank you for the abundance and support you’ve shown him these many years.’
As you may remember, on Wednesday, the star was rushed to the hospital after his organs started failing.
During this dark time, he was fortunately surrounded by family, who was praying for a kidney donor that could have saved the actor’s life.
Unfortunately, David Cassidy lost the battle with the sickness.
He had also been struggling with dementia in the last couple of years and was scared of what the illness could have done to him in the future considering that his mother had dealt with something similar up until she died.
About his fantastic career and influence, the regrettable artist said: ‘Playing live for my fans has been the thing that’s been motivating me to continue to work and do what I love. I had the largest fan club in history and people would ask me all the time, ‘What is it about you?’ I do not know…All I know is, I can act, and I try to bring light and love into people’s lives and lift them up.’
Cassidy has left behind his loving fans as well as a 26-year-old son named Beau and daughter Katie, 30.
Rest in Peace, David Cassidy, you will be greatly missed.
