Devastating News For Luke And Owen Wilson
Actors Luke Wilson and Owen Wilson are in mourning after the death of their father Robert "Bob" Wilson.
The 75 year old passed away after years of battling Alzheimer's disease, according to Luke.
The news was confirmed to the Dallas Morning News.
Bob spent his life behind the cameras working in public broadcasting in a 50-plus year long career.
In 2015 Owen briefly mentioned his dad's illness and the toll it has taken on his family.
“It is a rough thing,” he told Dallas Morning News.
“It’s one of those things where if somebody had said 10 years ago, when my dad and I were joking around, having a putting match, that this is the position your dad’s going to be in, where he basically needs 24-hour care, you’d think, ‘Gosh, I won’t be able to handle that. That’s just not possible.’
“But it does happen. Such things just happen in life.
“You just have to do your best to deal with it. You’ve got no choice but to accept it.
"And then, you sort of still look for the things to be grateful for. He is at home, taken care of, and he has people around that love him.”
Thoughts go out to his family.
Bob is survived by his wife, Laura Wilson, three sons, Owen, Luke and Andrew and multiple grandchildren.
