Robert Goulet
November 26, 1933 – October 30, 2007

Robert Goulet was a popular American singer and actor who skyrocketed to fame when he was cast as a virtual unknown in the role of Sir Lancelot in the 1960 Broadway production of Camelot.  He more than held his own opposite Julie Andrews and Richard Burton, earning himself a Tony as well as Grammy for Best New Artist in 1962.  His recording of the show’s “If Ever I Would Leave You” was a hit and subsequently became his signature song.  Throughout the ’70s and ’80s, Goulet continued to work in the theatre and was also a familiar face in film and on television.  Though less visible in later years, he still occasionally made guest appearances on TV up until the final years of his life.  Robert Goulet was 73 when he died of Pulmonary Fibrosis on October 30, 2007.
