In 2005, Lively starred as Mr. Vreeland in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," the father of his daughter Blake Lively's character Bridget Vreeland. He reprised his role alongside his daughter in the 2008 sequel "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2."

The father-daughter duo also appeared together in the 2006 slasher film "Simon Says."

Prior to acting, THR reports Lively was an English professor and served as a lieutenant in Vietnam, returning as a captain in the U.S. Marine Corps.

After a Hollywood career spanning nearly five decades, Lively retired in Utah "because of the outdoor life" but health issues following a heart attack in 2003 prevented him from "enjoying it," he told  The Salt Lake Tribune in a statement in 2013.

"I moved to Utah because of the snow, but I haven't been able to ski. I literally didn't have the heart to do it," he told People the same year. According to the outlet, Lively had "only half of a functioning heart and had trouble walking up a flight of stairs" before undergoing surgery.

Lively had a groundbreaking heart procedure at the University of Utah in November 2013. He became the first person to be treated with an experimental retrograde gene therapy for the heart.

Afterwards, he told People that he hadn't "felt this good in years" and was looking forward to "living the rest of my life instead of sitting around."

Per People, in addition to his wife Elaine and their children, Lively is survived by nine grandchildren, his sister Judith, and three of his children's spouses.
