With it reported that he was admitted to intensive care in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in critical condition and suffering from organ failure days previous, suggesting his passing was imminent.

Who elder relatives may have had heaving bosoms for should they have felt affiliation with Cassidy and Partridge Family rather than The Osmonds, or perhaps even The Bay City Rollers. But recent years had not been kind to the former boyish heartthrob and he had “hit some low points and ended up in rehab in 2014 after his third arrest for driving under the influence” and filed for bankruptcy in 2015, and in early 2017 he revealed he was in the early stages of dementia.
