Don Grady, who sang and danced as a Mouseketeer on "The Mickey Mouse Club," played son Robbie on the long-running family sitcom "My Three Sons" and later became a composer and songwriter, died Wednesday. He was 68. Grady died at his home in Thousand Oaks after a four-year battle with cancer, said his wife, Ginny. As a child in the Bay Area town of Lafayette, Grady developed a fondness for music and dancing. He told the Contra Costa Times in 2005 that he took clarinet and accordion lessons and later taught himself bass, guitar and the trumpet.
