James Van Der Beek Says He Learned Much Further About His Dad After Passing Of His Beloved Mother

In honor of his father’s birthday, Hollywood star James Van Der Beek updated his Instagram feed with a series of TBT photos belong to him & his father plus a current snap of them captured by his wife Kimberly Van Der Beek.

The ‘Dawson’s Creek‘ alum, who marked his daughter Annabel’s 7th birthday with an adorable Instagram tribute on the same day, penned a lengthy caption to express his feeling regarding the bond between him and his father, James William Van Der Beek. Describing his former professional baseball pitcher father as “always a solid guy” and “always a good father,” ‘The Rules of Attraction’ actor continued:

“Always supportive, and a provider, and kind, and thoughtful, and present, and a whole host of other qualities I had the immense privilege of taking for granted as a kid.”

The father of six went on by saying that he is most grateful about his father, a cellular phone company executive, right now, especially following the passing of his beloved mother, Melinda Weber. As known, the former dancer and gymnastics teacher passed away in 2020, at the age of 70.

Referring to their devastating loss, the actor praised his father’s life energy as a man who had to say goodbye to his high school sweetheart and wife of almost 47 years:

“We’ve always had a good relationship, but as he’s opened up more and more about just how human he is, the more clearly I’ve come to see him for who he really is… and the more I love him.”

The Hollywood actor concluded his touching post, by thanking his father for being a “rock” but “having the courage to be soft.”
