It’s an important day for the Kardashians, as Wednesday would have been the late Robert Kardashian’s 73rd birthday. The family has spent the day honoring their father, who lost his life after battling esophageal cancer, on social media.
“Happy birthday dad woohoo!” Rob Kardashian wrote alongside a photo of him and his father on Instagram. “Wish you were here to meet Dream.”
Kim Kardashian West later shared a family portrait on Twitter and wrote, “Happy Birthday dad! I love this family photo. I love our family. Thank you for EVERYTHING. I’m so grateful you are my dad!”
She followed up her tweet by explaining that she recently found a letter her dad had written her in high school and that she has decided to write her children similar letters each year.
Eldest sibling Kourtney also shared some touching words, posting a baby picture on Instagram.
“Happy birthday to the most handsome, funniest, sweetest, best daddy in the world!” she wrote as the caption, adding #MoustacheOnFleek.
Even Kris Jenner, Kardashian’s ex-wife, joined in on honoring him, writing, “There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t miss you. Forever grateful for the love you gave, the lessons you taught the kids, and the memories we shared. Missing you always. I am so blessed to have had you in my life and I cherish every single memory. I love you. Happy birthday Robert.”
Robert Kardashian was an attorney and businessman who became well-known after defending O.J. Simpson during his 1994 murder trial. In 2003, he was diagnosed with cancer and sadly passed away less than eight weeks later.
