Tom Bergeron’s father, Raymond Bergeron, died on Monday at 81, the host announced on that night’s Dancing with the Stars.

After taking a week away from the show to be at his dad’s bedside — tweeting, “He’s given me a lifetime of support. Time to return the favor” — Bergeron returned to the ballroom to share the sad news. He dedicated Monday’s episode to his father’s memory.

“My dad loved this show. Never missed an episode,” Bergeron said. “And I would ike to think that somewhere, he didn’t miss this one.”

The host also remembered his father on social media, calling him “The Best Man.”
