Feek shared two photos on his social media pages Sunday to mark the special day, the first showing him with the couple's 2-year-old daughter, Indiana, and his two grown children from a previous relationship, Heidi and Hope.

“Having a Happy Papa's Day finding Dory w my three girls,” he wrote in the caption.

Feek noted his late wife’s absence in a second photo he posted a hours later. That one showed family and friends gathered around a porch swing.
