Carter and Robin Thicke are taking a moment to remember their recently departed father. Television legend Alan Thicke passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday after suffering from a heart attack while playing ice hockey with Carter, age 19. Thicke was only 69.

Hours after his passing, Carter uploaded a picture with his father alongside a heartfelt message.

Today I lost my best friend and my idol, and the world lost one of it's finest. I have never known a more kind, loving, hairy, and generous person in my life and I am forever grateful for the light that this man brought to my life and so many others. You will be missed every second of every day. You are a legend and I love you Pops. Until next time.


"Blurred Lines" singer Robin Thicke also eulogized his father but telling the Los Angeles Times that his dad was "the greatest man I ever met" and "always a gentleman." He went on to say, "The good thing was that he was beloved and he had closure. I saw him a few days ago and told him how much I loved and respected him."
