Golden Girls Theme Writer Passes Away

| Filed under: R.I.P.

Sad!

Andrew Gold wasn't known by many, but his work was loved by millions, young and old, for the last 25 years. Andrew, who sadly passed in his sleep last Friday, was the writer of The Golden Girls theme song. He was suffering from renal cancer and according to his family, he may have had a heart attack while resting. He was 59.

Thank you for being a friend, Andrew. Our condolences to your family, friends and other loved ones who will surely miss you!

    59 is way to young to die from cancer! DON'T BE A VICTIM — AT THE VERY LEAST START TAKING YOUR VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTS THEY ARE FINALLY telling us REDUCE CANCER!!! Even better get into a great exercise and eating program as did Perez!
