David Cassidy


Born - 12 April 1950, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA
Died - 21 November 2017

Mop-haired - prematurely grey at 35, he later dyed it - cherubic, not-too-tall son of actor Jack Cassidy, whose enormous success as a teenage idol on the TV show The Partridge Family (starring his stepmother, actress/singer Shirley Jones) wasn't quite sustained, as he gradually faded from the limelight. His career was almost entirely spent on TV and in nightclubs, with a few isolated film appearances: Rosebud (1975), Instant Karma (1990), The Spirit of '76 (1990), Popstar (2005) and Forgiven This Gun4Hire (2018). Actress Kay Lenz was the first of his three wives. He died from dementia and multiple organ failure.
