  • Filmmaker & actor Ron Howard's father actor Rance Howard dies at 89

The actor, who appeared in films such as Apollo 13, was described as a man with "great personal integrity" in a tribute.

'Clint & I have been blessed to be Rance Howard's sons.

The elder Howard was the father of actor Clint Howard and grandfather of actresses Bryce Dallas Howard and Paige Howard. "We love & miss U Dad", Ron tweeted.

He gave me a gr8 compliment when he told me my directing style was much like that of his son Ron Howard! "He was only 18 months old, but we thought it would be wonderful for our parents to see their grandson in a movie with us".

Josh Gad, a close friends of the Howard family, took to social media on Saturday to express his sadness at Rance's passing. Ron Howard also cast his father as a cardinal in Angels and Demons (2009). "But someone checked and told me I've played more men of the cloth than any other actor".

Today Ron Howard is an accomplished director who first got his start in show business as a child actor on classic television shows like The Andy Griffith Show.

"He's had a 65-year career where he has never broken out as a movie star, he's never made the money that people dream of, and yet he's carved out this incredibly unique and remarkable and handsome career of a character actor".

"He has an undying love of the process, which has made him appreciate every day on a film or television set", the proud son said.

As his son Ron Howard began a directing career with his feature debut Grand Theft Auto, Rance Howard nearly always had a role in whatever his son was working on.

Rance Howard has a few upcoming projects that he had already completed, as well as some in post-production, and some in pre-production.
