Avery's "Fresh Prince" onscreen son, Alfonso Ribeiro, also confirmed the news on his personal Facebook page on Wednesday morning.

"The world has lost a truly special man. I am very saddened to say that James Avery has passed. Even though he played my father on TV, he was a wonderful father figure to me in life. He will be deeply missed," Ribeiro wrote on his Facebook page.

Very sad. Fresh Prince of Bel Air was probably my favorite show growing up, I watched the show religiously. RIP Uncle Phil
