Alan Thicke's family and friends gathered to celebrate his life at a memorial service Sunday evening
The entire 'Growing Pains' cast, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bill Maher and Bob Saget were all in attendance
Alan Thicke was remembered by family, friends and his former “Growing Pains” co-stars at a memorial service Sunday evening.
About 300 guests attended the service at Thicke’s family home in Carpinteria, California.
Joanna Kerns, Kirk Cameron, Tracey Gold and Jeremy Miller of the 1980s sitcom were there, as was Leonardo DiCaprio, who joined the show in its final season.
“Tonight’s memorial for Alan was just about perfect,” Thicke’s daughter-in-law, Dolly Thicke, wrote on Facebook alongside several pictures from the memorial. “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.”
Also in attendance were Kris Jenner, Bob Saget, Bill Maher, Alex Trebek and Rob Lowe.
Saget and Trebek gave speeches, and Thicke’s son Robin, the pop singer, made a joke about how his father’s two ex-wives were both there: “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.”
Thicke, 69, died December 13 after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey with his youngest son, Carter.
