Alan Thicke is gone but he is far from forgotten.
“Growing Pains” alumni including Leonardo DiCaprio, Kirk Cameron, Tracey Gold, Joanna Kerns and Jeremy Miller were among those who gathered for a service at Thicke’s family home in Carpinteria, California, on Sunday night to honor the late TV star, CNN reported.
Other famous faces in attendance were Kris Jenner, Bob Saget, Bill Maher, Alex Trebek and Rob Lowe.
Son Robin Thicke struck a jovial tone while paying tribute to his father, who died suddenly on Dec. 13 from a heart attack at age 69.
In a joke referencing the attendance of the veteran actor and theme song writer’s two ex-wives at the service, the “Blurred Lines” singer said: “I’m Alan Thicke and this is exactly the way I want to go out … I’d like to thank all of my ex-wives for coming,” according to CNN.
“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,” Thicke’s daughter-in-law, Dolly Thicke, wrote on Facebook. “Speaking for Alan so beautifully was (I’m realizing now) an all-star cast.
“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,” she continued.
