Guys, this one hurts. HURTS, I tell you!
TMZ is reporting that Alan Thicke had a heart attack this afternoon while he was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son, Carter. He was rushed to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center and later pronounced dead. He was 69.
Readers of a certain age (or if you’re a sitcom rerun junkie like me) will remember Thicke best as Dr. Jason Seaver in the show “Growing Pains” (he was Kirk Cameron’s dad, if you need a refresher) –
And if you happened to binge-watch season 2 “Fuller House” this weekend, you probably saw him in an episode. That’s probably why this is such a gut-punch – I just saw him on a brand new show on Netflix!
Excuse me, I need to go cry now.
