Sharing several throwback photos of the two of them together, Jennifer captioned her Instagram post with, “Sweet papa…⁣ John Anthony Aniston . You were one of the most beautiful humans I ever knew.

That number will forever hold an even greater meaning for me now. I’ll love you till the end of time.”

Jennifer also added, “Don’t forget to visit.”

John first started playing Victor Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives back in 1985.  He appeared in the episode that aired last week but seeing how there usually are months between when the daytime drama films episodes and when they air, fans will get to see more of John Aniston on the daytime television show in the coming weeks ahead.

Born Yannis Anastassakis in Chania, Greece in July 1933, John Aniston moved with his family to the US at the age of two, with his father anglicizing the family’s surname to Aniston.
