Tim Robbins is coping with an extremely difficult loss. Both of his parents have passed away less than two weeks apart.
Tim’s mother, Mary Robbins, passed away on Sunday at the age of 78, just 12 days after his father, Gil Robbins, died at 80.
Mary died of a heart arrhythmia on Sunday, the Associated Press reports. On April 5, Gil died after battling prostate cancer.
The couple, who was married for 59 years, both died at their home in Esteban Cantu, Mexico, according to the AP.
“He was very charming, open and funny,” Tim told the Los Angeles Times of his late father. “He had a real strong moral center; he spoke up for what he believed in.”
Of his mother, Tim told the AP she “had a calm and cheerful demeanor, a sharp wit, a gentle spirit and a generous and loving heart.”
Both of the actor’s parents were musicians and Gil was a member of 1960s folk group the Highwaymen.
Mr. and Mrs. Robbins are survived by four children and four grandchildren.
