America's Beloved Dad Passes Away Suddenly After Tragic Incident

December 14, 2016

The country mourns the devastating death of actor Alan Thicke.

He was best known and loved for his iconic role as Jason Seaver on the hit 1980s sitcom Growing Pains.

The 69-year-old was playing ice hockey with his son, Carter. Thicke had apparently fallen during the game, but seemed to be completely coherent and speaking, even joking around as he was being wheeled out by the EMTs. The onlookers said he appeared to be completely fine.

He was taken to the hospital and there, he passed away. Reports states that the cause of death was from a heart attack.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this difficult season.
