Feb. 7 (UPI) — Kelsey Grammer broke his silence Wednesday about the death of John Mahoney, the actor who played his dad on the sitcom Frasier for more than a decade.

“He was my father. I loved him,” Grammer tweeted.

The simple message captioned a photo of Mahoney with his arms wrapped affectionately around Grammer’s neck in an embrace.

Mahoney died in hospice care Sunday in Chicago at the age of 77.
