Heartbreaking News for Modern Family Star Rico Rodriguez

Modern Family star Rico Rodriguez has revealed the heartbreaking news that his father, Roy, has passed away.

Rico, who plays Manny Delgado in the long-running hit sitcom, took to Instagram with an emotional post in which he confessed he would miss his "Daddy".

"This has been the toughest week of my life," the 18-year-old wrote. "My Dad was the most kind-hearted, loving, hard working, determined and funny man I have ever known.

"He was like a super hero, he had the ability to get the best out of you day in and day out.

"I'm gonna miss your hugs. I'm gonna miss your advice. I'm gonna miss your smile, and I'm gonna miss your laugh."

He continued: "I know you're looking down at us right now, giving us the green light to move forward. 

"I miss you Daddy. I'll love you forever - Your youngest."

According to Girlfriend, Roy ran a tire store in Texas, and is survived by his wife Diane, Rico and his three siblings, Raini, Roy Jr and Ray.
