Filmmaker and father to Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr, Robert Downey Sr has passed away at the age of 85 years old.
Downey has been living in New York with his wife, Rosemary Rogers, who was at his side when he passed away as a result of a five-year battle with Parkinson’s
Robert Downey, Jr just shared this touching message to his father on social media:
RIP Bob D. Sr. 1936-2021…
Last night, dad passed peacefully in his sleep after years of enduring the ravages of Parkinson’s ..he was a true maverick filmmaker and remained remarkably optimistic throughout..
According to my stepmom’s calculations, they were happily married for just over 2000 years. Rosemary Rogers-Downey, you are a saint, and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
