Family and Friends Say Goodbye to ‘Growing Pains’ Star Alan Thicke


The late Alan Thicke was laid to rest on Tuesday in a California cemetery, a week after his sudden passing.

On Sunday evening, about 300 guests gathered at a memorial service in Santa Barbara to remember the actor. Attendees included his family: sons Robin, Brennan and Carter Thicke, and wife Tanya, as well as his Growing Pains TV family: Joanna Kerns, Kirk Cameron, Tracey Gold, Jeremy Miller, Ashley Johnson and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Also in attendance were Bob Saget, Alex Trebek, Kris Jenner and Rob Lowe.

Daughter-in law Dolly Thicke, posted pictures and a wrote message about details from the service. “Tonight’s memorial for Alan was just about perfect. So much family and so many historic friends came out to remember our beloved father-figure. Speaking for Alan so beautifully was (I’m realizing now) an all-star cast.”


The post went on to read, “We heard from our own Robin Thicke who brought up all dear dad’s best friends, Bob Saget, Bill Maher, Alex Trebec who I had no idea had such old deep ties to our family, the entire cast of Growing Pains including Leo and Kirk Cameron who I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time, along with his wife who became an instant friend.”

Thicke passed away on December 13, 2016 at the age of 69.
