    According to multiples sources, one Victor Tallarico, the father of Aerosmith frontman and American Idol judge Steven Tyler, has passed away at the Hunt Community assisted living facility in Nashua, New Hampshire. Mr. Tallarico was 95-years-young.

    Tallarico was a World War II veteran and a musician. He was surrounded by family when he died peacefully at the facility. That makes us feel good, knowing he went peacefully and of old age!

    The obit for Tallarico read as follows: "Victor was predeceased by his wife of 63 years, Susan Ray (Blancha) Tallarico. He leaves a brother, Ernest Tallarico, of Tampa, Florida, two children, Steven and Lynda; seven grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and many friends."

    It continued: "Among Victor's proudest accomplishments were his offspring: Lynda, a retired teacher who resides in southern Vermont, and Steven, who, having been well launched into the music business by Victor, became famous as Steven Tyler, the lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith."

    R.I.P., Victor Tallarico! You served your country and your family proudly.
