Like many others, Danny Bonaduce is mourning the loss of musician and “The Partridge Family” co-star David Cassidy.

On Nov. 21, Cassidy passed away in a Florida hospital after being admitted days earlier. He was 67 years old and suffered from dementia complicated by liver and kidney failure. His family confirmed the news of his death with a statement shortly after his passing.

“On behalf of the entire Cassidy family, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, our uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy. David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long. Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years,” the statement read.
