Ben Stiller celebrated the life of his father Jerry Stiller on Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show: Home Edition'.

Jerry died of natural causes earlier this month. Ben Stiller announced the news on Twitter writing: "I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes.

"He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years.

"He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad."

Jerry was renowned for playing Frank in 'Seinfeld' as well as Arthur Spooner in the series 'King of Queens'.

His co-stars remembered him on social media.

Ben spoke about wanting to commemorate his father too. He said on the 'Tonight Show': "It's a weird time now, you know, and people can't really gather together, and you can't do sort of a [service].

"I think somewhere down the line we'll do a memorial for him, when everybody can get together.

"Because there's so many people who loved him and who he worked with. But I thought it would be nice to be able to just have a moment to celebrate him a little bit."

Fallon showed a clip of the late comedian's appearance on his talk show.

Ben Stiller shared a number of personal memories and also talked about the number of people who have reached out to him since his father passed.

"There's a lot of people who have reached out, which has been really nice. I mean, just to feel how much he touched people, how much enjoyment he gave people, because I know that he would have felt good about all this," he said. "If you'd ask him, like, 'Do you care about all of, like, the show business aspect of things?' He really did, but he'd always say, 'But what I really care about is my kids and my kids being happy.'"
