LOS ANGELES (AP) - Robert Goulet was in good spirits as he waited for a lung transplant before they inserted a breathing tube : « Just watch my vocal cords », his wife said. The big-voiced baritone, whose Boradway debut in « Camelot » launched an award-winning stage and recording career, died Tuesday at a Los Angeles hospital, where he had been awaiting the transplant after being diagnosed last month with a rare form of pulmonary fibrosis. Goulet was 73. Vera [Novak] Goulet, his wife of 25 years, said they were last abel to speak three weeks ago before the signer was placed on a respirator. 
The Massachussetts-born Goulet, who spent much of his youth in Canada, gained stardom in 1960 with « Camelot », the Lerner and Loewe musical that starred Richard Burton as King Arthur and Julie Andrews as his Queen Guenevere. Goulet played Sir Lancelot, the French knight who falls in love with Guenevere. […]
Goulet won a Grammy Award in 1962 as best new artist and made the singles chart in 1964 with « My Love Forgive Me ». [...]
The only son of French-Canadian parents, Goulet was born in Lawrence, Mass. After his father died, his mother moved the family to [Edmonton] Canada when the future star was about 13. He received vocal training at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto but decided opera wasn't for him. He made his first professional appearance at age 16 with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.

His first two marriages ended in divorce. He had a daughter with his first wife, Louise Longmore, and two sons with his second wife, Carol Lawrence, the actress and singer who played Maria in the Broadway production of « West Side Story ».
