Cameron Douglas is having a “difficult” time processing his grandfather Kirk Douglas’ death.

The legendary icon and “Spartacus” star died peacefully at home last week surrounded by his children, grandchildren and his wife of 65 years, Anne Buydens Douglas, according to the actor’s longtime publicist, Marcia Newberger. 

“Losing him is one of those things that, even when you sort of see it coming — he was 103 — it’s still difficult,” Douglas, the son of actor Michael Douglas, wrote in a heartfelt tribute for The Hollywood Reporter.

Douglas,41, remembered his grandfather as the epitome of a family man who always “showed up — for everyone in the family.”

“He was always there, always supportive and he believed in me even when maybe I had given up on myself. He made sure I knew that,” he wrote, recalling a time when Kirk and Anne showed up to his New York DJing gig early in the morning in the “late ’80s, early ’90s.”

At the ceremony for Michael Douglas' star on the Hollywood Walk of fame on Nov. 6, 2018, the actor celebrated with his son Cameron, left, wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and father, Kirk Douglas.

Some of Douglas’ sweetest memories of his grandfather revolve around Kirk’s relationship with his daughter, Vivian, the late actor’s 2-year-old great-granddaughter. 

“These past couple of years, I moved about 15 minutes away from them and have been spending a lot of time with him, bringing my daughter Vivian over on weekends,” Douglas wrote. “Just watching the bond between my daughter and grandfather was extremely special. One of the motivating factors behind bringing my family out to Los Angeles was to spend more time with him. That says a lot about the man that he was in my life.”
