The comedian, who was 7 when his dad was killed, tweeted, “All jokes aside. There's not a day that goes by where I dont think of u. Ur my hero. Cant wait to see u again someday.”

Pete also posted a pic on Instagram with the caption, “Can't believe it's been 14 years. Over 2/3 of my life without you. It feels like it was just yesterday. There's not a day that goes by where I don't think of you. You're my hero. Can't wait to see you again someday RIP dad 1/4/68-9/11/01 #neverforget.”

He followed up by thanking fans for their support, writing, "Thank you so much for all the support today you guys. I really appreciate it. I'm a very lucky guy."
