Actor Rico Rodriguez has paid tribute to his late father Roy, who died last week.

The 18-year-old, who plays Manny on smash hit comedy Modern Family, announced his father's death on Sunday in a tribute on Instagram.

He posted a photo with his father alongside the caption, "This has been the toughest week of my life. My Dad was the most kind hearted, loving, hard working, determined, and funny man I have ever known."

"I'm gonna miss your hugs. I'm gonna miss your advice. I'm gonna miss your smile, and I'm gonna miss your laugh. I know you're looking down at us right now giving us the green light to move forward. I miss you Daddy. I'll love you forever - Your youngest."

Roy was 52 and is survived by his four children - Rico, Ray, Raini and Roy Jr and his wife Diane.
