Musicians, actors and other celebrities are remembering teen idol and “Partridge Family” star David Cassidy, who died Tuesday of complications from dementia at 67.

His “Partridge Family” TV brother Danny Bonaduce said “He was always there for me.”

His real-life half-brother Shaun Cassidy remembered their playful pillow fights.

The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson wished him “love and mercy,” echoing Wilson’s 1988 song.

“Brady Bunch” star Maureen McCormick said that “deep down I dreamt of being a Partridge.”

Harry Connick Jr. remembered having him as a guest on his show.

Another teen favorite, Rick Springfield, tweeted, “Godspeed.”

Alexa PenaVega, who appeared with him in TV show “Ruby and the Rockits,” remembered him as an “amazing TV daddy.”

1980’s rocker Richard Marx said he was “incredibly warm and gracious.”
