Rocker Marylin Manson has announced the passing of his father on Instagram and shared a touching tribute with his 1.9 million followers.
"Today I lost my father, Hugh Warner," he wrote alongside a childhood photo with his dad.
He added, "He taught me how to be a man, a fighter and a survivor. He taught me how to shoot a gun. How to drive. How to lead. He will always be the best dad in the world."
The 48-year-old performer, whose birth name is Brian Hugh Warner, previously lost his mother Barbara Wyer in 2014, after a difficult battle with dementia. "Somehow and somewhere, I know he is with my mom now," Manson continued.
He completed his Instagram tribute with, "I will keep my promise and never let you down. I miss and love you dad."
