RHOBH’s Eileen Davidson Eulogizes “Wonderful” Father-in-Law Dick Van Patten
We were very sad to report that Eileen Davidson's famous father-in-law, Dick Van Patten, recently passed away. Now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is taking to Twitter to commemorate the late actor, businessman, and animal welfare advocate.
"Thank u for all the condolences about Dick Van Patten," she wrote. "What a wonderful loving hilarious humble talented man. I will love him forever."
Eileen later followed up with the tweet: "Dickie and Pattys anniversary dinner in April," including a family photo from the special event. Dick is survived by his wife of more than 60 years, Pat. The 56-year-old soap star has followed up that photo tribute with other highlights from Dick's life and career, so check out her Twitter.
The legendary actor passed away at the age of 86 due to complications with diabetes. Dick began his career on Broadway at the age of seven and started his career in television in 1949. His final role was in 2011's Hot in Cleveland, making the span of his career an impressive 75 years.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family during this difficult time.
