It has been confirmed that actor Alan Thicke passed away today after suffering a heart attack while he was playing hockey with his 19 year old son Carter. This was something that the two of them did fairly often according to reports.
According to TMZ, Alan was brought to to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center around noon today, and pronounced dead there.
Alan leaves behind three sons along with his wife, Tanya.
Alan will be remembered for his most famous role in ‘Growing Pains’ but he has over 45 credits to his name, he even recently starred in the pilot episode of ‘This Is Us’.
My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.
