Ron likewise took the chance to praise his son on Father's Day.

Before leaving "Happy Days" in 1980, Ron made his directing debut with the comedy/action film "Grand Theft Auto" in 1977.

He then proceeded to direct several television films. His big break came in 1982, with "Night Shift."

He has since directed many high-visibility films, including "Splash," "Cocoon," "Parenthood," and "Apollo 13."

In October 2008, Ron showcased the world premiere of his film "Frost/Nixon" at the 2008 London Film Festival.

He was the winner of the Austin Film Festival's 2009 Extraordinary Contribution to Filmmaking Award.

In November 2017, Ron, who was born Ronald William Howard on March 1st, 1954, in Duncan, Oklahoma, announced that he would be teaching his first directing class.
