Tara wrote that her father, Colby Carter – a WWII veteran – has passed away. The beauty posted several flashback images of her father over the decades.
It comes a year after her husband Robert Altman died of cancer the year before.
‘My father Colby Carter passed away last night at the age of 99,’ her comment began.
‘He was a deeply adventurous man who loved to travel, and he gave me my appreciation of this beautiful country.’
And he talked about his past as a hero.
‘As a World War II veteran, he truly gave meaning to the term “Greatest Generation.”

She then discussed what a role model he was: ‘My dad was a steadying force early in my career, making sure I survived early so I could move to LA and start acting.
‘I loved seeing him in the audience at my concerts, and I know he was one of my biggest cheerleaders.
‘In later life, watching him be a loving grandfather to my children was the most special gift. Dad, I will love and miss you forever.’
She was spotted in a gold mini dress and high heels last week when she attended the T-Zen Awards, which are part of City of Hope.
The brunette bombshell was also given a leadership award for her advocacy of TGen and City of Hope’s research and clinical advances.

In her Instagram caption, the star revealed what kind of cancer Altman was suffering from.
“I am so grateful to receive @tgenresearch’s John S. McCain Leadership Award,” Siren wrote in her caption.
‘For more than 20 years, TGen has conducted groundbreaking genetics research to discover better, more precise treatments for diseases such as cancer and neurological disorders.’
He then added a personal note, sharing for the first time that Altman died last year.
‘I lost my loving husband Robert to myelofibrosis last year, and I support TGen in hopes of one day curing or surviving the deadly form of myelofibrosis.’
According to the Mayo Clinic, myelofibrosis is a rare type of bone marrow cancer that disrupts your body’s normal production of blood cells.
‘Myelofibrosis causes extensive scarring of your bone marrow, leading to severe anemia that can lead to weakness and fatigue. Bone marrow scarring can cause you to have a low number of blood-clotting cells called platelets, which increases the risk of bleeding. Myelofibrosis often causes an enlarged spleen,’ the site explained.
Linda ended her comment by saying, ‘Thank you, Dr. Trent and Dr. Caligiuri for devoting his life to such a great work. You’re a superstar, and I’m proud to be a part of the TGen community!’
