Alan Thicke, ‘Growing Pains’ Dad, Dies


Sad news this morning.  Canadian-born Alan Thicke, the “Growing Pains” star who played one of the quintessential television fathers of the 1980s, died yesterday. He was 69.

As an actor, he was best known for “Growing Pains,” the multi-camera family comedy that aired on ABC from 1985 to 1992. Thicke played Jason Seaver, a psychiatrist and patriarch of a Long Island family. Working out of the family’s home after his wife went back to work as a reporter, Seaver balanced his professional duties with his role caring for the couple’s three children. Thicke starred alongside Joanna Kerns, Kirk Cameron, Tracey Gold, Jeremy Miller, and later a young Leonardo DiCaprio.

Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario in 1947, Thicke attended the University of Western Ontario after graduating from secondary school.  Thicke came to U.S. television after having risen to prominence as a host and frequent talk-show guest in his native Canada.
