Robbins' dad, folk singer Gil Robbins, died earlier this month (Apr11) at the age of 80 at his home in Esteban Cantu, Mexico.

Now The Shawshank Redemption star is facing further tragedy - his mother, musician Mary Robbins, passed away on Sunday (17Apr11) from a heart arrhythmia - just 12 days after Gil Robbins' death.

Mary, who was 78, became a professional musician in the 1950s after studying at the University of California in Los Angeles.

Tim has paid tribute to his beloved mum, insisting she had a "calm and cheerful demeanour, a sharp wit, a gentle spirit and a generous and loving heart".
