My Dad passed away this morning, My god was he a great Dad,” Lynch wrote. “My brother and I never had a second’s doubt that he loved us unconditionally. He was proud of us no matter what. Not for what we did, but for who we were. The rest was just details for my pops.”

My Dad was a character, a gent, an athlete, an intellectual, and a creator,” Lynch revealed. “He was always full of positivity and ready to have chats with anyone he crossed paths with, making friends at every turn. Such a charmer he was with his unmistakable, slightly regal voice and love of storytelling.”
