Growing Pains' Kirk Cameron Remembers TV Dad Alan Thicke

Robin, 39, paid tribute to his father in an Instagram post Tuesday. "I will always remember Alan as a amusing guy who always had a joke or a amusing story, who loved his family, [and] loved hockey", he says.

The 69-year-old actor reportedly suffered a heart attack while playing hockey with his 19-year-old son in Burbank, California on Tuesday. "I am so blessed to have grown up with him".

Leonardo DiCaprio is reeling from loss of his TV dad, Alan Thicke.

Coulier's Fuller House co-stars have also been paying their respects to Thicke on social media. "I even like the ones I'm not in! fullerhouse". "Kids skated out of the delivery room".

"So sad is the passing of Alan Thicke".

Officials in Corpus Christi: Don't drink or use tap water
But an overarching concern is an old water system where more than half of 225 miles of cast-iron pipe needs to be upgraded. The entire city of Corpus Christi, Texas was informed late Wednesday night not to use their tap water for any objective .

"After a few years at the CBC, when I finally decided that maybe I would try my luck in the L.A. market, I was able to go down there with a portfolio of experience in a lot of different areas", Thicke told The Canadian Press in 2011. The Ontario native created the original theme song for Wheel of Fortune, as well as the lead tunes for Facts of Life and Diff'rent Strokes.

Once stateside, he proved a versatile journeyman, taking on many different roles - from comedy writing for the likes of Richard Pryor, Glen Campbell and Olivia Newton-John, to hosting an ill-fated late-night talk and sketch-comedy show (that nonetheless helped launch the late-night career of sidekick Arsenio Hall).

"The CBC was the best thing that ever happened to me", he said in a 2011 interview with The Canadian Press to promote his appearance on a special episode of "22 Minutes". "Those people have never been written about the way I have". It was Thicke's job to welcome the intimate crowd and keep the service moving, Snider said. "You don't want to become a trivia question: 'Who was the guy who hosted the show with the biggest hype and the lowest ratings in the history of the free world?'" "He was alert. He even at one point made a crack to his son to take a picture of him on the stretcher, so he seemed to be in good spirits when he left". "I thought it was one of those internet hoaxes", he explains.

Bure, 40, who guest starred on Growing Pains, continued: "You were a part of my family and hockey family". It wasn't just his acting he brought to the U.S., it was his love of hockey, so much so that celebrities and pro hockey clubs alike noted his obsession with the sport alongside their expressions of condolence.

"When I was doing my talk show in Canada in Vancouver years ago, we had to beg, borrow and steal to get anybody in town", he told CP in 2013. He grew up a hockey fan and was close friend with hockey great Wayne Gretzky. In 2014, he also co-created the "reality sitcom" about his family life called "Unusually Thicke", which ran for two seasons on Pop TV and costarred his wife Tanya Callau, who Thicke married in 2005. "We had the privilege to work with America's Favorite Dad and his loss is one that is deeply felt".
