  1. As a child of the eighties I will always remember him as one the more congenial tv dads. He will be missed. Rest in peace.

    Never seen Growing Pains. It must’ve been unpleasant for the rest of the cast to have to be around Kirk Cameron.

    Too bad that Alan Thicke’s gone.

    RIP

    i think he became insufferable later.

    hopefully Cameron wasn’t such a dillweed that early on.
