Actor, Musician and my favorite TV dad Alan Thicke died of a heart attack four days after Netflix aired his guest appearance on Season 2 of Fuller House. The popular streaming service has tried hard to convince fans that the two occurrences are unrelated. Thicke’s passing however, also put an end to the Netflix reboot of Growinger Pains.
The Canadian born actor was most famous for his role as Jason Seaver, the dad on the ’80s sitcom, “Growing Pains”, but In 1980’s Canada, Alan Thicke was hailed as the next Johnny Carson. While in the US he was hailed as the next guy to never be Johnny Carson.
He was so adored by fans that we all ignored when 40-year-old Thicke dated 17-year-old Kristy Swanson who was the same age but much hotter than his TV daughter Tracy Gold.
While most of those close to Thicke are just happy that he is in a better place where he doesn’t have to listen to any of Robin’s music anymore. Kirk Cameron expressed his sadness that Thicke would be burning in fiery hell for all eternity and also told TMZ that he did not approve of his death at the inappropriate age of 69.
In a last ditch effort to resuscitate him, paramedics proceeded to ask Alan Thicke to “show me that smile again”. Alas, their efforts were in vain.
He’s survived by his wife Tanya and 3 sons; Robin, and the other ones.
While the Growing Pains theme would be most appropriate for the service, Robin Thicke has designated himself MC Real Fun (which is an anagram of ‘Mcfuneral’) so, a bagpipe rendition of Blurred Lines will be played, provided the ultra-talented Pharrell plays bagpipes, which of course he does.
A eulogy will also be given by his son, Robin, which will probably sound a lot like Marvin Gaye’s eulogy.
