NCIS Star David McCallum Passes Away at 90, Leaving Behind a Legacy of Talent and Warmth!

In a somber announcement, it was revealed on Monday, September 25, that beloved NCIS star David McCallum had peacefully passed away at the age of 90 due to natural causes. The news was confirmed by McCallum’s son, Peter, who praised his father as the kindest, coolest, and most loving father, always prioritizing family over self.

McCallum, renowned for his role as Illya Kuryakin in “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and later as Donald “Ducky” Mallard on NCIS since 2003, left an indelible mark on Hollywood. Described by his family as a true renaissance man, McCallum was not only an accomplished actor but also displayed a keen interest in science and culture. His diverse passions translated into knowledge, allowing him to conduct a symphony orchestra and even perform an autopsy if necessary, drawing from his extensive studies for his role on NCIS.

Surrounded by his loved ones at New York Presbyterian Hospital, McCallum bid farewell to the world. His son, Peter, shared a poignant moment, recounting his mother’s wish to have grown old together with McCallum. Despite the 11-year age gap (McCallum being 90 and his wife 79), their vibrant relationship showcased a timeless connection that defied age.

David McCallum is survived by his wife, Katherine McCallum, and their children: sons Paul and Peter and daughter Sophie. His legacy extends further through his eight grandchildren, a testament to the impact he had on both his immediate and extended family.

The NCIS family, deeply affected by the loss, swiftly paid tribute to the late star who had been an integral part of the cast for all 20 seasons. As fans mourn the passing of a talented actor and a warm-hearted individual, McCallum’s contributions to the entertainment industry and his enduring spirit will be remembered fondly by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
