Pink posted of the loss of her Vietnam War veteran father with two black-and-white pictures of them dancing together when she was a child, and then at her 2006 wedding to Carey Hart.

She captioned the snaps: “Til forever.”

Page Six confirmed the news of Jim’s passing.

Recently, Pink shared a snap of her and her dad performing I Have Seen the Rain in New York City in 2006.

Jim wrote the song while he was serving in Vietnam.

She captioned the shot: “Daddy-Sir.”

Last July, Pink – real name Alecia Beth Moore – revealed on Instagram her father had “just finished his second round of chemo for prostate cancer.”

She wrote: “Here he is, my Dad, scared and in pain sitting with the love of his life, our Grace, and what’s he doing???? Smiling. Cracking jokes. Making everyone else feel better.

“He’s already back to his old tricks ten hours later, talking about napalm and snipers and viruses and blood puddles…. oh, Dad. How amazing it is to watch you whistle through Hell.”

IN HER CORNER

Jim cheered on his daughter early in her career, telling a Philadelphia paper in 2000: “Nothing’s better than and wilder than seeing her do this.

“She said she was going to do it as a kid and she meant it.”

Jim is survived by his second wife, Grace Lilleg Moore, his children, Pink and Jason, as well as grandchildren including the star’s daughter, Willow, 10, and son, Jameson, four.

STANDING UP FOR WHAT’S RIGHT

This comes after Pink jumped in to help the Norwegian women’s beach handball team after they were fined for not wearing bikini bottoms.

She accused the European Handball Federation of being sexist after sanctioning the team.

Earlier this year, Pink and her daughter Willow wowed viewers with a “beautiful” trapeze performance at the Billboard Music Awards.

The singer is known for her high-flying stunts, but fans were amazed to see Willow join her to perform their mother-daughter duet called Cover Me in Sunshine.
