Actor Alan Thicke, father of R&B and pop singer Robin Thicke, died Tuesday, Dec. 13 at age 69, his publicist told CNN.

“Today the world lost an amazing talent,” Tracy Mapes with Imperium 7 Talent Agency shares.

Thicke guest starred on season 2 of “Fuller House” on Netflix as a character named Mike who was D.J.’s blind date. Thicke starred on ABC’s “Growing Pains from 1985-1992. “Fuller House” is over its growing pains. Renewed season 2. See you there. See me on it. #fullerhouse @netflix @candacecbure @bobsaget,” he tweeted.

Earlier today, Thicke had a heart attack while he was playing hockey with his 19-year-old son, Carter. He was transported to Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center around noon today, and pronounced dead, according to TMZ.

He leaves three sons Robin, Brennan and Carter and his wife, Tanya, to cherish his memory.
