Famous actor Kirk Douglas died in February 2020 at the tremendous age of 103. And he’d led a remarkable life. When he passed away, he left a family behind – among whose members was equally well-known star Michael Douglas. The latter was Kirk’s oldest son, and after his father’s death he paid tribute to him with a touching statement.

Kirk’s family didn’t reveal the exact cause of his death, but it was well known that he’d had health issues for a long time. A major stroke back in 1996 meant that he struggled to speak, and he had only partially regained the ability to express himself after months of therapy.
