Don Grady died on Wednesday. You know know Don Grady as the Robbie Douglas on “My Three Sons”. He was also famous for being the original Mouseketeer. Following suffering from cancer for a long while, Don Grady died at the age of 68. He leaves behind his wife, Ginny Lewsader, who he was married to for more than 25 years.

Grady appeared in other TV series such as The Eleventh Hour, Wagon Train, The Restless Gun, The Rifleman and Zane Grey Theater. In addition to being an actor, he was a musician and a composer.

Ironically, Don Grady died the day after one of his costars from “My Three Sons”. Doris Singleton, who played multiple characters on the show in recurring roles, died on Tuesday. She was 92 years old.

    Don’s death at age 68 made me more than sad: I’m a “boomer” as well, and the two of us grew up together … even though I can claim the age of 67 and never having met him in person.
    I grew up with Don: our first TV at home — I believe it was a Halicrafters — found me lying on the living room floor watching the MOUSEKETEERS … learning my morals, smiles, dance steps that never quite worked out. Being a musician myself, I STILL know the Mickey Mouse Club Song by heart.
    My brother died of the same non-Hodgkins lymphona, so the whole scenario replayed in my head and my heart. I will miss Don’s creative spark in everything that he did … to use the word “wholesome” in Hollywood is a tough connection to make. But Don did it, and I am forever grateful … at least until I get a chance to thank him on that other side … and we can wiggle our Mouseketeer Ears together and have a good laugh about how well life treated us both, for it truly did. As the scriptures tell us: “we shall all be changed in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye.” Sometimes the “change” takes longer than we would like. Rest in peace, my friend. Rest in Peace. You are in my prayers as are the members of your family. — Ralph

    P.S. Life is merely a single musical tone, played once, and then gone forever into eternity never to be repeated … nor having a need to be repeated. Only musicians know that.

    P.P.S. I had a Kawai Piano, too … it seems that we both have still have good taste!
