Michael Phelps mourns the death of his father

Michael Phelps pays tribute to his late father.

The Olympian shared in a heartfelt Instagram that his father, Fred Phelps left us. “You will always be my father. And I will always be your son… I love you daddy and I will miss you daddy.

Michael—who shares sons Boomer6, Beckett4 and maverick3, with wife Nicole Johnson– shared several throwback photos of his dad, including one of his dad looking lovingly at his grandson and one in which he holds one of his grandsons.

Fellow Olympian Lindsey Vonn commented, “So sorry for your loss. He will always be here”, while the Baltimore Ravens wrote, “So sorry for your loss. Your Ravens family sending love.”

The eldest Phelps – who shared the same name, Michael Fred Phelps, as his famous son – was a retired Maryland state trooper who played high school and college football and also tried out for the NFL Washington commanders in the 1970s.
