    Will Smith's ex-wife Sheree Fletcher took to Instagram Monday to note the death of her former father-in-law, Willard Carroll Smith, Sr.

    "We're gonna miss you Daddio! You lived & played by your own rules...you truly were 1 of a kind!" Fletcher captioned the picture of Smith Sr. along with son Will and grandson Will Smith III. "You instilled discipline, and a work ethic that has created a legacy in your honor!"

    Smith, who was married to Fletcher from 1992 to 1995, has not publicly commented on his father's death. The actor has been married to actress Jada Pinkett Smith since 1997.
