Willard Carroll Smith Sr., father of Will Smith, has passed away.

The 48-year-old Suicide Squad star’s ex-wife Sheree Fletcher, whom he was married to from 1992 to 1995, posted a tribute to her former father-in-law on Instagram on Monday (November 7).

“We’re gonna miss you Daddio! You lived & played by your own rules… you truly were 1 of a kind!,” Sheree captioned with her post. “You instilled discipline, and a work ethic that has created a legacy in your honor!
