The Growing Pains star had suffered a fatal heart attack around 11 a.m. while playing hockey with his son Carter. The TV icon was pronounced dead after he arrived at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank around noon PT.
Now, it’s important to note that this was most likely a pre-planned post that had been scheduled before the 69-year-old even began to feel chest pains.
And, considering how suddenly the famous father passed, we know Alan’s team had much more important things to think about than his social media activity.
Plus, the news about the Canada native’s death didn’t even get out until hours after the tweet was live.
Regardless, we’re still shocked and saddened by this untimely loss. Our hearts are with everyone affected during this tough time.
