Shirley Jones co-starred alongside Dave Madden for four years on the hit ’70s show The Partridge Family. Now the 79-year-old actress is speaking out in memory of the man best known to audiences as Partridge family band manager Reuben Kincaid.
“Dave was a great person and was one of the reasons The Partridge Family worked so well. He will certainly be missed” the star tells RumorFix.
Madden passed away Thursday of congestive heart failure. He was 82-years-old.
Jones starred as the mother of five kids who start a band and embark on a music career. Madden played their harried manager. The show was a staple on ABC’s Friday night line up from 1970 -1974 and made a teen idol out of David Cassidy. It’s lived on to this day thanks to syndication and cable TV.
