They say that couples who have been married a very long time tend to die within a few days of each other, and sadly that seems to be exactly what has happened to Tim Robbins‘ parents, Gil and Mary. Â Gil died on the 5th of April after a long battle with prostate cancer, and just twelve days later Mary also passed away, dying of a heart arrhythmia.
Tim must be heartbroken, but he was able to pull himself together long enough to make public statements honoring both his parents. Â He said that his father was charming, open, and funny, and that his mother had a gentle spirit and a loving heart. Â Gil and Mary Robbins were married for 59 years.
