Barry Livingston, who played Grady’s adopted brother on “My Three Sons,” expressed his sadness on Facebook, writing “Sad, sad day. My dear friend and TV brother, Don Grady, passed away today. He was an inspiration to me in so many ways and his impact on my life is indelible. I will miss him greatly.”
