(CNN) – Alan Thicke, the beloved TV actor who epitomized the role of the sitcom dad, died Tuesday at age 69, his agent told CNN.

“Today the world lost an amazing talent,” said Tracy Mapes with Imperium 7 Talent Agency. She did not provide details regarding the cause of death.

His ex-wife, singer and actress Gloria Loring, confirmed his death in a statement on Facebook.

“It is a shock. We were all just together for Thanksgiving. He was talented, funny and deeply devoted to his family. Rest In Peace, dear one.”

Thicke’s career spanned five decades — one in which he played various roles on and off screen, from actor to writer, to composer to author.
