If you were watching TV in the 70’s (and probs a girl!) you were probably a fan of The Partridge Family and/or a fan of star David Cassidy. Sad news today that he says he’s struggling with dementia.
The 66-year-old actor-singer told People magazine his family has a history of dementia and he had sensed “this was coming.” He says for now he wants to stay focused and “enjoy life.” He says his diagnosis is of “early onset dementia.”
Cassidy has had numerous personal problems in the decades following his initial success, ranging from substance abuse to bankruptcy. He’s the stepson of actress and fellow “Partridge Family” star Shirley Jones.
