Modern Family cast in mourning

Rico Rodriguez, who plays mature and romantic Manny on the hit series, is mourning the death of his father, Roy Rodriguez.

The 18-year-old paid tribute to his “super hero” father, who passed away last weekend at age 52.

Rico is still reeling from the “toughest week of my life” and detailed his heartbreak on a photo of the two drinking milkshakes together.

“I'm gonna miss your hugs. I'm gonna miss your advice. I'm gonna miss your smile, and I'm gonna miss your laugh.

“I know you're looking down at us right now giving us the green light to move forward. I miss you Daddy. I'll love you forever - Your youngest.”

Rico’s older sister Raini, a household Disney star, also paid tribute to the “greatest man in my life” with a smiling selfie of the pair.

“You have officially been gone one week daddy and while it has been really difficult, we are all still standing tall and I know it's because you are sending us strength and guidance all the way from heaven,” wrote the 23-year-old.

Roy is survived by his wife Diane and his four children – Rico, Raini, Roy Jr and Ray.

Our deepest condolences go to the Rodriguezes.
