Sandra Bullock has lost her beloved father, who passed away on Tuesday, September 18 at 93 after years of poor health, RadarOnline.com can confirm. Though the actress is a busy mom of two, she quietly was a “full-time nurse” to her dad in his final months at his home in Birmingham, Alabama, Radar can exclusively report. “Sandy absolutely worships her daddy and wants to be there for him in his twilight years,” a source told Radar this summer. “She’s put a lot of projects to one side so she they can spend precious time together, and if that means losing out on some movie roles then I’m sure her attitude is, ‘So be it.’” Military veteran John’s longtime friend Jimmy Koikois told Radar very private superstar Sandra didn’t “want anyone to know” she was in town acting as her father’s caretaker.

“He has around-the-clock care now,” pal Jimmy, 79, told Radar earlier this year. “I visited him three weeks ago at his house, he was a little low on oxygen and has a machine, but he’s doing okay.”
