“Sweet dad”: Jennifer Aniston’s dedication to her father who died at 89 moves the world

weet dad. You were one of the most beautiful human beings I have ever known. I am so thankful that you went to soar in the skies in peace and without pain. I will love you until the end of time. Don’t forget to visit me.” ”And November 11, to top it off! You always had perfect timing. That number will forever have even greater meaning to me.” 

It is the moving post by Jennifer Aniston published on her Instagram profile with which, in support of a series of photos that portray the star of Friends together with her father over the years, the actress communicates the death of her 89-year-old father, John Antony Aniston . 

John was born in Crete on July 24, 1933.

Yiannis Anitios Anastassakis (this is his real name) was a Greek-American actor, best known for his role as Victor Kiriakis in the series “Days of Our Lives”, (The time of our lives), an American soap opera born in 1965 and still broadcast in the United States by the Nbc network. Aniston joined it in July of 1985 and has been one of the main characters ever since.

His family moved to the United States when he was two; his father anglicized the family names upon his arrival in America. The family settled in Chester, Pennsylvania, where he ran a restaurant. John Aniston had played another character, a doctor, Doctor Eric Richsrds, in the soap “The Time of Our Lives” in 1969-70, to then interpret in the same series from 1985 until a few months ago the character of Victor Kiriakis. He also starred in the soaps “Waiting for Tomorrow”, in the role of Martin Tourneur, and “Love of Life”. Aniston also appeared twice on the telefilm “Lieutenant Kojak” – the star of that series, Telly Savalas, was Jennifer’s godfather – and also appeared in episodes of “The Virginian”, “Star Trek: Voyager”, “
