Father of Jennifer Aniston and Emmy-winning star of the daytime soap drama “Days of Our Lives,” John Aniston, has passed away at the age of 89.

On Veteran’s Day, Friday, the actor’s daughter took to Instagram to share the sad news that her father had passed away. Aniston, John, served in the Navy.

John Anthony Aniston, Jennifer’s sweet papa, she wrote. “You were truly one of the most stunning people I’ve ever met. I am relieved that you were able to soar to the heights without any unnecessary suffering. Not to mention on November 11th! The timing of your actions was impeccable. This adds new significance to that number for me.”

Search for Tomorrow, The West Wing, and Gilmore Girls were just a few of John Aniston’s acting credits. However, he was most well-known for his recurring role as family patriarch Victor Kiriakis on “Days of Our Lives.” Kiriakis is a former drug lord who eventually founds the powerful Titan Industries.

With his role on “Days of Our Lives,” he was nominated for an Emmy in the category of best supporting actor in a drama series in 2017. He won a lifetime achievement Emmy earlier this year, and Jennifer Aniston made a video tribute to him.

Jennifer Aniston said at the time, “It’s a chance to not only pay tribute to a true icon in the daytime television world, but also a chance to recognize the lifelong achievements of a great and well-respected actor, who also happens to be my dad.” There has been no break in John Aniston’s television career in almost fifty years.

John Aniston, whose given name is Yannis Anastassakis, was born in Crete, Greece, and moved to Pennsylvania with his family when he was a young boy. He began his professional acting career in the 1960s with roles in “Combat!,” “I Spy,” and “The Virginian.” He studied theater at Pennsylvania State University.

Aniston has been married twice; his most recent wife was Sherry Rooney. Aside from Jennifer and Alexander Aniston, he also raised John Melick, his stepson.
