Wow. Just saw his Optima Tax Relief commercial today. All my childhood TV stars passing lately. RIP Alan. I used to have the biggest crush on Joanna Kerns by the way.
Great actor and seemed like a great guy, as well. He'll be missed.
2007 SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS & 2010 AFC CHAMPIONS
1940, 1953, 1976, 1981, & 1987 NCAA CHAMPIONS & 2002 NCAA FINALISTS
1970, 1972, & 1973 ABA CHAMPIONS & 2000 NBA EASTERN CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS
This sounds very similar to John Ritter's death(although he didn't appear as healthy as Alan did IMO) seemed fine talking then he started vomiting and passed shortly after.
Alan Thicke’s Cause of Death Revealed
Last week, Alan Thicke unexpectedly passed away at age 69, and now his death certificate has been released.
The death certificate revealed that he died from a “ruptured aorta” and a "standard type A aortic dissection.”
In an attempt to save Thicke’s life, doctors performed a median sternotomy, in which a vertical incision is made along the sternum, the area around the heart and lungs.
Despite the surgery, Alan died three hours after he suffered the heart attack. The time listed for his death was 2:14pm on December 13.
TMZ was first to report the news.
