Last week the world suddenly lost Alan Thicke at the tender age of 69. For many of us, he was our TV dad. This fan grew up watching Growing Pains, so hearing the news that Alan had passed felt like losing a member of my own family.
But Alan wasn’t just our TV dad. He was also a skilled composer, having written the theme songs for several TV shows, including Diff’rent Strokes and The Facts of Life.
Some of Alan’s recent onscreen roles include guest spots on Scream Queens and Fuller House.
Please enjoy these videos celebrating some of Alan’s greatest roles and feel free to mention those that aren’t listed and/or your fond memories.
