Howard Stern Announces His Father Ben Recently Died at Age 99

Howard Stern is mourning the loss of his father.

The radio host in an interview with Dan’s Papers announced his dad, Ben Stern, died recently at the age of 99. Although the popular TV and radio personality revealed the passing, he did not provide any further details on the matter.

“I lost my father recently, he was 99 years old,” Stern told the outlet.

Ben’s death announcement was partnered with a creative project that Howard is working on in honor of his late father. Specifically, Howard is planning to paint barns with a tie to his dad.

“Next up: Corwith Barns,” he explained of his project. “I’ve done a bunch of smaller paintings of the barns but this one is a larger size. The barns are no longer there but I photographed them many times, and I’m doing a big painting that hopefully captures every broken board on that fading structure.”

“Not sure how old those barns were, but I feel like painting the barns is honoring him and all those growing older and then gone,” he added.
