On the behalf of himself and his brother Clint Howard, Ron took his Twitter and gave the fans a sad news of his father's death.

Like his son, Rance Howard began his career appearing in several classic television shows such as Combat!, The Fugitive, Night Gallery, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, and even a few episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. He praised his father for the ability to balance ambition with great personal integrity. Without Howard's longtime work, we may never have gotten to witness the careers of Ron Howard, Clint Howard and his granddaughter Bryce Dallas Howard. The actor wrote, "Clint & I have been blessed to be Rance Howard's sons. We love and miss you Dad".

Ron Howard kept many of his movies in the family. "He's an example of that stick-to-it-ness and what that adds up to in a life".

Actor Josh Gad remembered how welcoming Howard was when he stepped into Hollywood.
