The Partridge Family - Dave Madden Dies At 82

The Partridge Family star Dave Madden has died at the age of 82.

The Canadian-born actor passed away early on Thursday (16Jan14) after suffering congestive heart and kidney failure, according to Tmz.com.

Madden began his career with an appearance on U.S. sitcom Camp Runamuck in 1965 and rose to fame after starring in Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.

But he will perhaps be best remembered for his role as long-suffering band manager Ruben Kincaid on popular 1970s sitcom The Partridge Family, which also featured David Cassidy and Danny Bonaduce.

He also made guest appearance on Tv series like Bewitched, Happy Days, The Love Boat and Fantasy Island, in addition to Boy Meets World and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.
