Brooke Robinson released a statement confirming the television star’s death, with reports claiming he died after suffering a ‘heart attack or stroke’ during a work call.

An official cause of death has not been declared.

‘David was very healthy and was on a work call in our dining room at home when he collapsed,’ the statement read.

‘Life-saving manoeuvres were attempted and paramedics were called.’

‘David died in my arms,’ she continued. ‘We ask again for time and space to grieve for the husband, father, brother, and friend that was lost.’

Robinson appeared alongside Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman in Dog’s Most Wanted, a WGN series that ran for a single season in 2019.

‘We have had many years of happy times, fun parties, television, businesses, tears and triumphs,’ she said at the time.

‘We share two beautiful daughters and three adorable grand-daughters.

‘Marriage is difficult and in some cases does not always last; we had a great run and I am proud of the time we’ve spent building a life. We are family and will always love each other as such.’ (sic)
