We are so sorry for his loss.
Rico Rodriguez, who plays Manny on Modern Family, mourned his father's death Sunday with a touching post shared on Instagram.
The 18-year-old wrote:
"This has been the toughest week of my life. 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. 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."
The actor's father was only 52 when he passed suddenly a week ago of yet-to-be known causes.
Rico's older sister Raini Rodriguez also posted a tribute to her dad (below):
