Sad, sad news for long-time “Dancing With The Stars” host Tom Bergeron. Tom took time away from the dancing competition last week in order to spend some final hours with his father Raymond. Now, we’ve learned that his beloved father has passed away at the age of 81-years-old.
On Monday night’s show, Bergeron dedicated the show to his late father. He told the audience, “My dad loved this show. Never missed an episode, and I’d like to think somewhere that he didn’t miss this one.”
Last Friday, Bergeron tweeted, “Back with my @DancingABC family on Monday. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers you’ve sent to my Dad this past week. So appreciated.”
On Saturday, he shared, “My Dad, looking back on his life, had one word for all of his worries; “insubstantial.” Nicely said.”
Our sincerest condolences go out to Tom Bergeron and his family during this tough time. It’s so great that he was able to be there for his father in his final moments.
