Jennifer Garner announces death of her father William Garner at 85

Jennifer Garner conveyed a touching tribute to her late father, William Garner, following the announcement of his passing on April 1.

In a heartfelt message shared on social media, the 51-year-old actress revealed that her father had passed away at the age of 85. She described the experience of grieving as something that “waits around unexpected corners,” acknowledging the inevitability of such emotions.

Throughout her life, Garner shared a close and profound connection with her father. Just a few months ago, in January, she celebrated her parents’ 59th wedding anniversary with a heartwarming post on Instagram, showcasing the enduring bond within their family.

In her recent social media post, Garner shared a collection of family photos while expressing the peaceful passing of her father. She recounted the moment they were with him, singing “Amazing Grace” as he departed, pondering whether their presence comforted him or perhaps startled him in his transition.

While recognizing the natural course of life for an 85-year-old man who lived healthily, Garner expressed the inevitability of grief, emphasizing her gratitude for her father’s long life and his gentle demeanor.

She highlighted his playful teasing, his patient role as a devoted father to his daughters, and his admirable qualities of work ethic, leadership, and faith.

Reports indicate that William Garner had always been a significant figure in his daughter’s life, evident in the deep bond they shared.

Last September, Garner made headlines for surprising her father on his 85th birthday with a thoughtful gift—a ride in his childhood car, a 1948 Studebaker Champion, a nostalgic gesture that spoke volumes about their relationship.
