(ET ONLINE) – Friends and family gathered on Sunday to honor Alan Thicke, who died at age 69 on Tuesday after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey at a skating rink in Burbank, California.

A source tells Entertainment Tongiht that about 150 people attended the beautiful, heartfelt memorial service that took place at Thicke’s ranch in Carpinteria, California, an oceanside city near Santa Barbara.

The source adds that the actor’s son, singer Robin Thicke, and his two brothers welcomed guests, and were specific in wanting something upbeat and beautiful to celebrate their dad’s life.

Robin hosted the service, the source says, telling stories about his father, and inviting guests up to share stories of their own about Alan, after starting the night off with a prayer.

Stars like Bob Saget, Bill Maher, Alex Trebek and the entire cast of Growing Pains, including Leonardo DiCaprio, spoke about how much Alan had meant to them. Kris Jenner sat next to Alan’s widow, Tanya, for the evening. Other celebrities in attendance included Kevin Costner, Barry Bonds, Luc Robitaille, David Foster and Paul Mitchell.

The Canadian actor, who was best known for his role as patriarch Jason Seaver on Growing Pains, recently appeared on season two of Fuller House, as well as the pilot episode of the NBC drama This Is Us.

He is survived by wife Tanya Callau and three sons, Brennan, Robin, and Carter.
