Robert Goulet (1933 - 2007)
From RobertGoulet.com we hear this very sad news that was posted yesterday:
Robert Goulet, the legendary star of stage, screen, television and recordings, was pronounced dead at 10:17am today. He had been suffering from a rapidly progressive pulmonary fibrosis, a condition that is most often fatal. Most treatments are ineffectual. The only successful treatment is lung transplantation. Mr. Goulet had been in intensive care at Cedars Sinai since October 14, 2007. At the time of his death his wife of 25 years, Vera Goulet, who has been with him constantly since his hospitalization, was holding his hand until his last breath. Also present were his two sons Christopher and Michael along with his longtime friend and family physician Dr. David Kipper.
He is survived by his wife, his two sons, his daughter Nicolette, and his two grandchildren Jordan and Solange. The family is grateful for all of the support from his friends and fans but requests that their privacy be respected at this difficult time. Details of his memorial service will be forthcoming.
