Wednesday marks what would have been Alan Thicke’s 70th birthday, and his loved ones are celebrating the occasion for him.

“Happy Birthday to my angel,” his widow Tanya wrote on Instagram along with a photo of the couple. “#2016 joint birthday celebration, they say 2 Pisces are internal soulmates. You are so missed my love……”

Thicke’s youngest son Carter, 19, also shared a tribute to his late father on the special day, writing, “Missing you and our times together extra today. Enjoy your birthday margarita and rhubarb pie up there, relaxing in your robe watching ESPN. You are and always will be the man. Happy Birthday Pops.”

Thick tragically passed away in December after having chest pains while playing hockey with Carter. He later died at a nearby hospital from “ruptured aorta” and a “standard type A aortic dissection.” In addition to Carter and Tanya, he also left behind sons Brennan, 42, and Robin, 39.
