Actor Russell Crowe’s father “his dear old man” dies in Coffs Harbour

The father of Australian actor Russell Crowe has died.
John Alexander Crowe died aged 85 in Coffs Harbour on the NSW north coast.
His Oscar-winning actor son posted to Twitter, confirming the death of his “dear old man”.
“I arrived back in the bush last night,” he said.
“Today, although the sun is shining and the torrential rain has abated, this date will forever be tinged with sadness.
“My dear old man, my beautiful dad, the most gentle of men, has passed away.”
“I’m posting this because I know there are people all over the world who’s heart he touched and who’s ribs he tickled with his sparkly eyes and his cheeky attitude to everyone, and everything, and this is probably as efficient a method as any to pass on the news.”
Crowe and his father quarantined together at his property in Australia last year.
“Isolating with the old man. 84 now,” Mr Crowe wrote on Twitter at the time.
“Wearing a hat I got at Princeton while shooting A Beautiful Mind“.
John’s death came just weeks after he celebrated his 85th birthday.
