FOXNews is reporting that singer/actor Robert Goulet passed away Tuesday at an LA area hospital of pulmonary fibrosis. He had been on a lung transplant list for some time but due to age he was a lower priority on the list.
Vera Goulet, his wife of 25 years, said they were last able to speak three weeks ago before the singer was placed on a respirator.
Longtime friend Wayne Newton said Goulet’s sense of humor ‘kept my spirits up in some of the lowest valleys in my life.’
‘His incredible voice will live on in his music, and as Bob so brilliantly sang, ‘There will be another song for him and he will sing it,’ for God now has another singing angel by his side,’ Newton said in a statement.
