Dwayne Johnson shares the eulogy he delivered at his father’s funeral service

Dwayne's father Rocky Johnson passed away at the age of 75 on January 15 due to a heart attack. Rocky was battling deep vein thrombosis, which is a blood clot in the leg. Dwayne shared a ten-minute video from the funeral that took place last month. He got emotional as he delivered a speech he wrote for his father. He said:

 
"Dad, you lived a full and meaningful life. You trail blazed and even harder, you changed people's harsh behaviors toward a man of color. Paving the way for me, my family and generations to come. You loved us with the capacity of which you could - given all the givens. Raised me with an iron hand and tough complicated love.”
 
"A love that now, as a father and man, I've learned to refine as I raise my own children. I wish I had one more shot. To say one more thing. You were taken too fast. Slipped right through my hands. But you were so loved, lived so full, defined culture and now you rest high. Peacefully. And that makes my heart smile. I love you and now I have an angel to call by name. I'll see you down the road, Soulman. Till we meet again. Your son," the actor concluded.
