Fans were blown away by the picture and praised the brothers. Others remembered the late David. One fan wrote:

"Find it hard the last few Chrismas’s to listen to the partridge family Christmas album! I have 2 special needed family members and it was a family tradition while decorating the Christmas tree , but it hurts to much to listen to it anymore."

The album referenced by the fan in their comment was a result of the show David starred in called "The Partridge Family." The actor is survived by his two children: Beau and actress Katie Cassidy.

Even though Shaun followed his brother into the entertainment industry, his career took a different route. He is now a writer and renowned producer and has worked on projects like "American Gothic," "Roar," and "Invasion."


After losing his brother, Shaun took to Twitter to write:

"When I was a little boy and my big brother would come to visit, the first call of business would be a punishing pillow fight. During the battle, he would regale me with hysterical stories of our father, often culminating in his taking a giant leap off my top bunk..."

And he added:

"...I tried to catch him of course. I always tried to catch him. But I never could. Now, I will carry him, along with all of the funny/sad/extraordinary days we shared, none more filled with love than these last few at his side"
