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.  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.  He said that his father was charming, open, and funny, and that his mother had a gentle spirit and a loving heart.  Gil and Mary Robbins were married for 59 years.
