The Wayans family patriarch Howell Wayans has died at the age of 86 from unknown causes as his famous sons remember him always putting 'family first.'
Howell Wayans' son Marlon confirmed the news on Saturday on Instagram, calling his father a 'legend' and saying he was the 'example of a man to all your boys.'
'When I was a child I asked my Dad what did you want to be when grew up? He simply said: "I wanted to be a man," I said: "Not a lawyer? A doctor? An actor?"
'He said: "Just a man."'
When he told his father that every little boy eventually becomes a man, Howell told him that was 'not true' and that 'a man takes care of himself and his responsibilities. His family is always FIRST.'
