"Happy Father's Day to a dad who always showed up. Miss you. #HappyFathersDay."

Another added: "He was great… I used to watch him and your mother…" Someone mentioned: "Your dad lived an amazing laugh…" An admirer sweetly wrote: "Just know, he is always with you."

At a point, the couple decided to go solo to save their marriage.

Last month, Ben Stiller opened up about being with Jerry Stiller at the final moments of his life. He made it known that Jerry's death was peaceful.

The "DodgeBall" actor shared that his dad's humor streak remained, even in his final days. Stiller was also grateful for being by his father's side during those times. Hollywood's Jerry Stiller died of natural causes at the age of 92.

Ben Stiller was born into a showbiz family with both parents, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, rocking the world of comedy. The elder Stiller and Meara met in 1953 during a New York audition.

They later became partners both in romance and business. Jerry and Anne became TV favorites on "The Ed Sullivan Show." The two became parents years later and had Ben and Amy Stiller.

Just like their parents, Ben and Amy are stars in their own rights with impressive Hollywood resumes. As a show business family, Jerry and Anne moved from place to place, performing and spreading their fame. At a point, the couple decided to go solo to save their marriage.
