According to TMZ, actor Alan Thicke – who is best known for his role as Jason Seaver in Growing Pains – has died at the age of 69.

He reportedly was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son, Carter, this morning when he had a heart attack. He was transported to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center at noon where he was pronounced dead.

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



Cate has a B.A. and an M.A. in English Literature and has been the Managing Editor of Fame10 for more than 6 years. Despite having a love for the works of Thomas Hardy, Leo Tolstoy and Lord Byron, she also has an intense fascination with pop culture. When she isn’t writing for Fame10, she’s planning her next big adventure in Southeast Asia.
