Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds has paid tribute to his father, James Reynolds, who has died after suffering Parkinson’s disease for 20 years.

The Green Lantern star tweeted an old photo of him and his dad, who went by the name of Jim.

“RIP Pops. James C. Reynolds. 1941-2015,” Reynolds tweeted on Wednesday.

He also asked people to make a donation to The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

In 2008 Reynolds became the Celebrity Chair of Team Fox, the foundation’s fundraising arm. He is now on the Board of Directors.


Reynolds and his wife, actor Blake Lively, had a baby girl earlier this year. They named her James after Reynold’s dad.
