Sadly, Alan Thicke was celebrated and remembered by his friends and family in Hollywood. The “Growing Pains” dad died Tuesday of a massive heart attack.
His son Robin Thicke said to the Los Angeles Times that his dad truly was “the most awesome man that I have ever met” and “he was always a gentleman.”
“The best thing was that he was truly love and he had closure about that,” Robin Thicke said. “I just saw him merely a few days ago and told him then how much I really loved and also respected him.”
Alan Thicke’s son Carter was with his grandfather when he suffered the heart attack and shared some of his thoughts on Twitter.
Today I lost my best friend and my idol, and the world lost one of it’s finest. You are a legend and I love you Pops. Until next time.
Kirk Cameron, who played Alan Thicke’s television son on the show “Growing Pains” said he was certainly shocked by this sad news of his former co-star’s death.
“I spent Monday through Friday for seven important years with Alan Thicke as my ‘TV dad,'” Cameron said in a statement. “I’m shocked and truly heartbroken today at the news of his death. Alan was a generous, kind and loving man. I am so blessed to have grown up with him.”
69 is just too young to exit this earth and it is a reminder that people need to prepare the unexpected. Albuquerque insurance agents, South Carolina insurance agents, Atlanta insurance companies, and Virginia insurance providers agree that finding life insurance is important for most people to have so that families are left with some kind of financial security in the event of the unthinkable.
It also needs to be a reminder for all of us to monitor our heart health and avoid ignoring it. The consequences are just too great.
