TV sitcom icon Alan Thicke has died, according to multiple reports. He reportedly had a heart attack while playing hockey with his 19-year old son and he was pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center. Thicke started having chest pains at about 11:30am and an ambulance was called. He passed away at about 12 noon.

Candace Cameron (sister of Kirk Cameron and Thicke’s co-star on “Growing Pains”) sent out the following Instagram post after the news got out about his passing:
