Alan and Carter regularly played hockey at a rink in Burbank. He and Carter were reportedly on the ice around 11 AM when he started having chest pain, then got nauseous and vomited. The ambulance picked him up around 11:30 yesterday and took him to the hospital. “He certainly has given us great tv to grow up with and will be sadly missed.”, says Industry Highlighter Mag Team.

Thicke was a Canadian actor, songwriter, and game and talk show host. He was known for his role as Jason Seaver, the father on the ABC television series Growing Pains. He also had a successful career as a TV theme song composer, often collaborating with his then-wife Gloria Loring on themes for popular sitcoms Diff’rent Strokes and The Facts of Life.
