The world is still reeling from news of iconic entertainer and The Partridge Family star David Cassidy’s death at age 67. For the first time since the news broke, his daughter, actress Katie Cassidy, has spoken out.
Katie took to Twitter to share his heartbreaking final words, writing: “Words can’t express the solace our family’s received from all the love & support during this trying time. My father’s last words were ‘So much wasted time.’ This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute….thank you.”
David and Katie had a complicated relationship as father and daughter. As many fans know, Katie was primarily raised by her mother, Sherry Williams, and her stepfather, Richard Benedon.
Still, the two connected later in life, with Katie telling People in 2009: “To be able to go to someone I’m genetically linked to, tell them anything and know that they’re not going to judge me — it’s unbelievable. It’s nice when your dad can be your friend.”
It has also been widely reported that Katie was at David’s bedside when he passed away.
Despite David’s tragic last words, he still led an incredible life. Watch the video below to learn more about all that he accomplished over the course of his career.
