David Cassidy, the performer best known for his role on The Partridge Family, has died. He was 67.

The actor and musician entered a Fort Lauderdale, FL hospital for liver and kidney failure last week.

Cassidy’s family issued a statement confirming the news of his death on Tuesday evening (November 21):

“David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long,” reads a statement from Cassidy’s publicist (via CNN). “Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years.”

Cassidy became a teenage heartthrob with his role as Keith Partridge in the ‘70s sitcom, The Partridge Family. He would go on to have a career as a musician with hit songs such as “I Think I Love You,” and “Daydreamer.”
