Tina Fey pays loving tribute to her late father Donald Fey

“Saturday Night Live” alum and award winning writer Tina Fey just lost her father Donald on October 18th as he succumbed to heart failure while at Bryn Mawr Hospital in Pennsylvania. Following his funeral service on Friday, she released a statement as a loving tribute to her father.

“He was a great dad and a talented artist and writer, but I also think of him as a Great American – he served his country in Korea, he served his city as a fireman, he took his kids regularly to art museums and historical sites,” daughter Tina recalled.

“When he taught me how to play baseball he would say to me, ‘If you throw like a girl again, we’re going in.’ (I took it in the spirit it was intended.) He read poetry and history and newspapers. He was an informed patriot. The Republican Party should have tried to clone him.”

Donald’s son Peter also read two of his poems during the service. He is also survived by his wife Jeanne, two sisters, a brother and three grandchildren.

May he rest in peace.
