Thicke died in December 2016 after collapsing while playing hockey with his youngest son, Carter. His cause of death was later revealed to be from a “ruptured aorta” and a “standard type A aortic dissection,” according to his official death certificate.

"It's been years now and I still reach for the phone occasionally, just thinking, 'I haven't talked to Alan in a while and want to say hi,'" Miller said. "He was a huge part of our lives."
