Alongside a throwback photo of himself and the late model/actress, Quincy wrote:

“There is absolutely no combination of words that can express the sadness I feel after losing my beloved Peggy Lipton. My wife of 14 years. We shared many, many beautiful memories, and most importantly, we share two incredible daughters… Pie (Kidada) and Doonkie (Rashida).”

“Regardless of the paths that our lives took us on, I can say with the utmost certainty, that love is eternal,” continued Quincy who has five other children with four other women. “Thank you all for the love and support you’ve shown me and my family.”

'We can’t put all of our feelings into words right now, but we will say: Peggy was and will always be our beacon of light'

The Grammy-winning producer’s post also included a joint statement from their daughters, Kidada, 45, and “Parks and Recreation” alum Rashida, 43.

“In lieu of flowers or gifts, you can make a donation to Seasons Hospice, the wonderful team who took care of our mom,” they wrote.

“Your donation will be in support of all of their services including Camp Kangaroo, a bereavement camp for young children, and their Foundation, which helps grieving families in need by helping pay for groceries, funeral arrangements, bills, etc.”

Lipton, known for playing Norma Jennings in “Twin Peaks” and Julie Barnes in “The Mod Squad,” first revealed that she’d been diagnosed with colon cancer in 2004 before succumbing to the disease on Saturday, May 11.
