Robert Goulet, died yesterday in California, at age 73. The famed singer had recently been diagnosed with a rare type of pulmonary fibrosis. Ironically, he was awaiting a lung transplant.

The singer skyrocketed to fame in 1960, when he made his Broadway debut, playing Sir Lancelot, in Lerner and Loewe's Camelot, sharing center stage with Julie Andrews and Richard Burton. (Historical note: He played King Arthur in the 1993 revival of Camelot). In 1968, he appeared on Broadway with David Wayne, starring in The Happy Time, for which he won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Other Broadway roles were as replacements: Moon Over Buffalo( 1995) and La Cage Aux Folles (2005). He also starred in national tours of South Pacific and Man of LaMancha. On television, he starred in Brigadoon, Carousel and Kiss Me Kate.

Goulet is survived by his third wife Vera, whom he wed in 1982, and his three children, Christopher, Michael and Nicolette. His previous marriages were to Carol Lawrence and to Louise Longmore.
