Tori's split with first husband Charlie Shanian after 15 months of marriage and her subsequent whirlwind wedding to Dean McDermott in May, had caused her relationship with her family to become strained.
She explains, "I'm grateful I recently had the opportunity to reconcile with my father and most grateful we had the chance to tell each other we loved one another before he passed away.
"It's a true blessing to have had a parent that loved me unconditionally.
"He had a heart as big as his talent and today, along with many others, I mourn his loss. He was a great man and an even better father."
The 83-year-old producer died on Friday from complications from a stroke.
