Alan Thicke was remembered by his friends, family and fellow actors in Hollywood. The "Growing Pains" star died Tuesday of a heart attack.
His son Robin Thicke told the Los Angeles Times his father was "the greatest man I ever met" and "always a gentleman."
"The good thing was that he was beloved and he had closure," Robin Thicke said. "I saw him a few days ago and told him how much I loved and respected him."
Alan Thicke's son Carter, who was with him when he had a heart attack, shared his thoughts on Twitter.
