"The world new Larry King as a great broadcaster and interviewer, but to us he was 'dad,'" Larry King, Jr., Chance King and Cannon King wrote in a statement posted to the TV icon's Twitter account following his death at age 87. They added: "He was the man who lovingly obsessed over our daily schedules and our well-being, and who took immense pride in our accomplishments—large, small, and imagined," they continued. "And through it all, we knew without a doubt in the world that he loved us more than life itself. He was an amazing father, and he was fiercely loyal to those lucky enough to call him a friend. We will miss him every single day of our lives."
