"Fox & Friends" paid tribute to Nevada real estate attorney and show regular Bob Massi, who died Wednesday after an extended battle with cancer. 

Massi, 67, was a staple on Fox News and Fox Business, hosting a show called "The Property Man," and offering his legal expertise on real estate and housing issues facing ordinary Americans. 

Massi, whose appearances on Fox News Channel dated back to the network's launch in 1996, leaves behind his wife Lynne, sons Dominic and Robert, daughter Genna, two brothers and six grandchildren. 

Massi ran his own law firm, Robert A. Massi & Associates, in Henderson, Nevada, where he lived. Fox colleagues paid tribute to Massi on Twitter after the sad news was reported: 

Steve Doocy said Massi was beloved by his colleagues and his audience for the commonsense advice he provided. 

Ainsley Earhardt said Massi was a "wonderful person," always sending Christmas gifts around the holidays. 

Brian Kilmeade said Massi "took on the big guys" as an attorney and was dedicated to helping the "little guys" around the country who lost so much in the 2008 housing market collapse. 

On "America's Newsroom," Bill Hemmer said Massi was a big Steelers fan, loved Las Vegas and whenever any of his colleagues visited "he was there to take you to dinner."

Watch the moving tribute to Massi above.
