Edward Albert

Edward Albert, the actor/son of the late screen veteran Eddie Albert who first gained fame co-starring with Goldie Hawn in the 1970s film "Butterflies Are Free" and later became an outspoken environmental activist, died Friday, September 22 after a long battle with lung cancer and only one year after his father. He was 55.

Albert, who served on the California Coastal Commission, died in his sleep at his home in Malibu after a battle with lung cancer, said his family. He was surrounded by his immediate family and a few close friends, including a Chumash medicine woman, who performed a traditional ceremony.
