Stars close to the late veteran actor gathered Sunday to share their condolences of Alan Thicke.


Among them were Leonardo DiCaprioBob SagetKirk Cameron, as well as Thicke’s three sons RobinBrennan, and Carter. Also involved were Thicke’s Growing Pains co-stars Joanna Kerns and Tracey Gold. Thicke played Jason Seaver, the patriarch of the family, known for giving timeless fatherly advice.

“Tonight’s memorial for Alan was just about perfect,” an attendee wrote after the service. “So much family and so many historic friends came out to remember our beloved father-figure. Speaking for Alan so beautifully was (I’m realising 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 (sic) 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.”

Son and singer Robin told the Los Angeles Times that his father was “the greatest man I ever met,” and added that he was “always a gentleman.”

“I saw him a few days ago and told him how much I loved and respected him,” Robin concluded.

Miss you Pops. The best
