Alan Thicke Remembered As Celebs Pay Their Respects On Twitter

Television legend and actor Alan Thicke has passed away at the age of 69.

The father-of-three had reportedly been playing hockey with his 19-year-old son Carter when he suffered a fatal heart attack.

Thicke was transported to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California at approximately noon on Tuesday, December 13. He was pronounced dead at the medical facility.

Thicke leaves behind his three sons Robin, Brennan and Carter, as well as his wife, Tanya.

According to TMZ, the “Growing Pains” actor was regularly at the Burbank-based ice rink to play hockey. The report states that Thicke and his son Carter were playing hockey at around 11 am on Tuesday.

During a game of hockey, Thicke had chest pains and eventually became nauseated, which led to vomiting.

Once an ambulance arrived to assist Alan Thicke at around 11:30 am, he was then transported to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center where he was pronounced dead as the result of a heart attack.
