Soleil Moon Frye is mourning the loss of her TV father.
The actress, now 39, grew up on the set of "Punky Brewster," where she played a precocious youngster raised by a foster father named Henry Warnimont. George Gaynes, who played Henry on the classic sitcom and starred in the "Police Academy" films, passed away at the age of 98 on Monday at his daughter's home in North Bend, Washington.
After the news broke, Frye took to her social pages to honor her late-costar, sharing a sweet tribute on both Instagram and Twitter.
The universe just gained a gigantic star. You will be in my heart and soul always & forever. Your little Punky RIP George Gaynes
