“Yellowstone” star Dave Annable shared the tragic news that one of his closest friends, Joshua “Sheep” Allen, passed away unexpectedly.
Dave Annable took to Instagram earlier this week to share his grief and loss with everyone. He shared a slideshow of photos of himself and Sheep, from them golfing together to goofing off to hanging out with their kids. Sheep is survived by his wife Summer, and his daughter, August.
At this time, no cause of death has been revealed. But the GoFundMe page started for the Allen family asked for support after the “unexpected and untimely passing” of Sheep.
“Yellowstone” star Dave Annable began his post earlier by saying, “This is the most gut-wrenching post I’ve ever had to share. My best friend for over 20 years is gone. Sheep, there is too much to say to you. There will never be enough ‘I love you’s that I can think, write or say out loud to anyone that will listen.”
He then continued, “You are my brother. The grief is unbearable. If I could have had just 5 more minutes with you I would have promised you that I would look after your beautiful family forever. I will be thinking about you every f*****g second. I miss you.”
Dave Annable then took the time to address his fans and followers. “What I ask from all of you is that you help his family through this incredibly shocking and difficult time,” Annable said. “Please donate what you can for his wife and daughter.”
He concluded, “There is so much more to share with you Sheep but I will keep that between us. I love you. I love you. I love you.”
