KISS guitarist and co-lead vocalist Paul Stanley has revealed that his father, William Eisen, passed away at the age of 101.

On November 7, Stanley took to social media to share a photo of him and his dad. He captioned it with a touching message. Eisen was a holocaust survivor.

“My dad William Eisen has left this earth after 101 years & 7 months,” Stanley wrote. “His thirst for knowledge never wained. He could speak on virtually any subject. His pride in my accomplishments was heartwarming as was seeing his love of my family. He said he’d always be with me and he will.”

In KISS’s official authorized biography “Kiss: Behind The Mask”, Stanley wrote that his “family wasn’t that well off.”

“When I was six, my father bought me a bike, which was the only thing that I was given of any value,” he continued. “We weren’t affluent, but we survived. There were times when money was very tight. In Manhattan, the four of us lived in a one-bedroom apartment; my parents slept in the living room and my sister and I shared the bedroom.”

“My father worked as a furniture salesman, and my mother was a teacher,” he added. “Originally, she was a registered nurse, and then she taught retarded kids. Ultimately, she became a full-time housewife.”
