In a heartfelt farewell thanking him for “everything,” Kevin Hart confirmed the passing of his father, Henry Witherspoon.

“RIP to one of the realest & rawest to ever do it…Love you dad,” the comedian wrote in the caption of a series of Instagram photos of himself with his late dad on Wednesday. “Gone but never forgotten.”

Give mom a hug for me…you guys did awesome dude,” continued Hart, who lost his mother, Nancy Hart, to ovarian cancer in 2007.

The 43-year-old actor expressed his gratitude for what Witherspoon had taught him, saying it had made him a “better father” to his own children.

“Thank you for everything….I’m a better father because of you ????? We will all make you proud,” he wrote.

Hart also published a picture of himself grinning next to his father, who appeared to be wearing breathing tubes in his nose.

“RIP spoon …..???,” he captioned the post on Wednesday.

 

“Blessings bro. Love to you and the fam,” Hasan Minhaj commented on the heartbreaking post.

“Sorry Kev. Sending you and your family lots of love.❤️??,” Wanda Sykes wrote.

“Oh, sorry, Kev. He wouldn’t have left you before he knew you were good. ❤️,” Chelsea Handler added.

Hart’s renowned friends swarmed the comments area with condolences and supportive notes to console the star in her grief.

“So sorry Kev. Love you. Keep making them proud brother,” Marlon Wayans commented.

Years of tension between Hart and his father were eventually resolved by burying the hatchet.

“My kids actually think I’m the coolest dad on the planet … I know why I am the way that I am, my dad has a lot to do with that — the mistakes that my dad made, you know, the decisions to do drugs, being in and out of jail, in and out of our lives,” he shared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” in 2017.

Hart continued, “I saw firsthand what not being present did and because of that, I now know what being present means. I know what that can do, I know what effect it can have on your child coming up.”

The “Jumanji” star said his difficult childhood made him stronger and a more positive person.

“I choose to go positive instead of negative a lot and because of that, my relationship with my dad is amazing now!” he shared. “And my dad understands how I feel and how I look at things, and now my dad is focusing on being the best grandparent that he possibly can.”
