Through three marriages, fatherhood, a second career on the stage and a string of TV roles—including one that earned him an Emmy nomination—Cassidy also had his share of personal struggles as he dealt with substance abuse, bankruptcy and the challenging aftermath of having been a teenage heartthrob. 

In February, he announced his dementia diagnosis and impending retirement. "I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I've been without any distractions," he told People at the time. "I want to love. I want to enjoy life."
