In a post containing a picture (above) Smith said some of his greatest lessons in acting, living and being a respectable human being came through Avery. He added “Every man needs an Uncle Phil. Rest in peace.”Fellow former cast member Alfonso Ribeiro also honored Avery on Facebook saying, “The world has lost a truly special man … Even though he played my father on TV, he was a wonderful father figure to me in life. He will be deeply missed.”
