Alan Thicke of ‘Growing Pains’ Dead at 69

Alan Thicke who played the father in the 1980s sitcom, Growing Pains, has died at 69. The series ran from 1985-1992 and featured Thicke as Dr. Jason Seaver. Dr. Seaver raised a household of four kids, one of whom was Kirk Cameron, who is really, really Christian.

According to TMZ, Thicke suffered a heart attack while playing hockey with his 19-year-old son, Carter. That has gotta be tough for Carter, no jokes there.

TMZ also says Thicke started having chest pain, felt nauseous and vomited. Half an hour later, an ambulance took him to the hospital. He was pronounced dead around noon.

Thicke recently guest starred in the second season of the Fuller House reboot. I did not know they had a second season. This wasn’t a one off?

Funny, people see Thicke playing a dad on TV and then come to him for dad advice. Thicke only yesterday gave his best advice to new dads:

RIP bruddah.
