TV legend Alan Thicke died at age 60 from a massive heart attack. According to TMZ, the actor was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son, Carter when he suffered a heart attack and was taken to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center around 12pm. He was later pronounced dead. Sources added that Thicke wanted his organs donated.

Thicke is survived by his wife, Tanya and three sons, Robin, Brennan and Carter.

I grew up with Alan during ‘Growing Pains’—yup the 80’s and more recently he was on “Fuller House.” And did you know he wrote the theme songs for  “Diff’rent Strokes,” “Wheel of Fortune” and “Growing Pains.”
