"He looked grey, he didn't look good, but he made a crack with his son saying 'Hey, take a picture of this,'" Stavert continued. "Alan plays on Tuesdays and Thursdays and he's been coming here quite a few years now. He's always been very fit. The pickup game he plays is five on five. It's a mix of guys who come here pretty consistently."

"His son looked a little panicked, as you would if your dad had just had a possible heart attack. He followed Alan in his car and went to the hospital," said Stavert. "I was still here at the rink when I hear he had passed, I was dumbfounded. Just the way he went out the building, you figured he was hurt, but you'd never think he's die from that. I didn't think it would be the last time I would see him at all."

Paul Lagloire, 88, retired, who organizes ice hockey games at Pickwick Ice Skating Rink, also shared details of the day. "My son, J.P., was here this morning," he told Radar. "He called me right after the game, he said: 'Hey, something horrible happened here today. Alan Thicke he had a heart attack.' He said they had called the paramedics, but before they arrived they went back to the ice and there was a guy who was lifting his legs. Alan was lying on his back and one of the other team guys was lifting his legs. I don't know why he was doing that. Somebody must have known something about life saving techniques. It's not what you'd expect if someone has a heart attack. It was during the game. It was a pickup game, Alan's son was the youngest, he was oldest at 69. The game lasts one hour and a half."

Alix Gosselin, 19, an assistant at the Pro Shop within the Pickwick Ice Rink, said: "One of the guys said he was feeling kinda weird when he went on the ice, and then it happened. He fell but he wasn't knocked out, he was talking and he was communicating, he didn't black out. He sometimes comes in the pro shop here he always says 'Hi' when he comes in and he was just like any other regular customer."
