Close to a year after he suffered a stroke, the father of actress Shannen Doherty passed away on Friday. He was 66.
In March, immediately after the former Beverly Hills 90210 star was prematurely voted off Dancing with the Stars, she expressed gratitude merely for appearing on the show and seeing her dad's "face light up" as a result.
In her statement dealing with the passing of John Thomas Doherty, Shannen referred to her father as the "greatest man in the world" and said: "I love him with every inch of my being and cannot imagine life without him."
Our thoughts go out to this actress and her family.
