Hollywood actor dad of Ron Howard dead

Rance Howard Dies: Actor And Father Of Director Ron Howard Was 89

The elder Howard's acting career spanned several decades since the 1950s.

On the behalf of himself and his brother Clint Howard, Ron took his Twitter and gave the fans a sad news of his father's death. "Today he passed at 89", he tweeted. "He stood especially tall [for] his ability to balance ambition [with] great personal integrity".

Rob said, "A depression-era farm boy, his passion for acting changed the course of our family history. We love and miss you Dad".

Rance Howard had been married to the late Jean Speegle Howard, having met as teenagers doing a touring children's production in Oklahoma of classic fairy tales. Without Howard's longtime work, we may never have gotten to witness the careers of Ron Howard, Clint Howard and his granddaughter Bryce Dallas Howard. Jurassic World star Bryce penned an emotional post on Twitter following Rance's passing, and shared a heartbreaking poem about death by Henry Van Dyke called Gone From My Sight. "He's an example of that stick-to-it-ness and what that adds up to in a life". Our thoughts go out to his family and friends during this hard time.
