Jerod Harris/WireImageMarilyn Manson‘s father, Hugh Warner, passed away on Friday. On his Instagram, the musician posted a heartfelt tribute to his late dad.
“He taught me how to be a man, a fighter and a survivor,” Manson writes. “He taught me how to shoot a gun. How to drive. How to lead. He will always be the best dad in the world.”
“Somehow and somewhere, I know he is with my mom now,” the post continues. “I will keep my promise and never let you down. I miss and love you dad.”
The tribute is accompanied by a photo of Manson as a young child sitting next to his father.
In 2015, Manson and his father posed together, both wearing full makeup, for an issue of Paper magazine.
