"Wheel of Fortune" co-host Vanna White is mourning the death of her father.

White, 65, took to social media on April 1 to mourn the loss of her dad, Herbert White Jr., who died earlier that day at the age of 96.

"It is with great sadness that I tell you my 96 year old dad passed away peacefully this morning," she wrote in a post. "He lived a full and happy life and will be remembered as one of the kindest and most wonderful human beings of North Myrtle Beach."

"I love you so much dad. RIP," she concluded, adding a red heart emoji and hashtags for "love," "family" and "greatest dad."

For Father's Day last year, White said on "Wheel of Fortune" that Herbert, who was technically her stepfather, was doing "great."

"I call him every morning to say good morning and that I love him," she said, calling him "special."
