It’s been one year since Jax Taylor’s dad, Ronald Cauchi passed away and now, the Vaderpump Rules star took to social media to pay tribute to him on the one year anniversary of his death. Check out the heartbreaking message.
Cauchi died last year in December after battling esophageal cancer. He was only 61 years old.
‘My heart’s broken. I lost my best friend and the very best man I’ve ever met last night, I love you so much dad I can’t even breathe anymore, the only person not letting me fall right now is my amazing girlfriend. I love you, dad,’ he wrote at the time.
Now, he wrote in part that ‘One year ago today I lost the man I aspire to be, my best friend. I still cannot believe you are gone, sometimes I don’t think it is real, I listen to your voicemails and videos all the time, always thinking, ‘what if ?’ Or ‘why?’ I know you’re with me because too many positive things have happened to me this year and I have seen so many signs of you.’
Jax added in his touching message that he still feels like they have chats but of course, not in real life but at church every Wednesday as well as every time he takes his dad’s ashes on his cruises with the guys.

One year ago today I lost the man I aspire to be, my best friend, still waking up every morning waiting for that text I always get from ya, “hey bud, what’s going on? What crazy shit are you getting into today?” Or “hows your cars doing?”, or the most important thing, “you watch the @detroitredwings game last night?” You would think he had something invested in the team he LOVED his redwings so much. I still can’t believe you’re gone, sometimes I don’t think it’s real, I listen to your voicemails and videos all the time, always thinking, “what if ?” Or “why?” I know you are with me because too many positive things have happened to me this year and I have seen so many signs of you. We still get to have our talks but now they take place at church on Wednesday’s and when I take your ashes with me on my cruises with the guys. Btw, dad everyone loves your corvette and I promise I am taking great care of it. I am getting married this year dad, I don’t know how I am gonna do it with out you physically standing by me, and helping me with my tie like the old days at hockey tournaments, god I miss those days. But I know you will be with me. I still don’t understand how God could take the best man/person/husband/father/coach I know. After you passed I have to admit I wanted nothing to do with God, I was angry, sad, disgusted on how he could take such a beautiful man, but I remembered how much you loved him and how you always told me how important God was to you, so I started going back to church and believing again, I have to believe he has a plan, and that I will see you again one day. I love you dad so much, I hope you are proud of me and all the changes I have made with myself. It wasn’t easy after you left us, but with the help of Jenny and Brittany, I have learned to deal with things in a more positive, healthy way. Today is a hard day, but we will get through it like we always do. I love you dad so much, you are and will always be my best friend. Till we meet again. ✝️??
In his post that was pretty much an intimate and vulnerable letter to his late dad, Jax went on to tell him about his upcoming wedding with his girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright.
Of course, he mentioned how much he’d want him to be by his side as he says ‘yes’ to the love of his life.
