His co-star Joanna Kerns reacted to his death during an interview with TODAY.
“I am devastated by Alan’s passing and will be for some time,” Kerns wrote. “I used to joke, before I met my real husband, Marc, that Alan was my favorite daytime husband. At work we laughed all day, everyday at things Alan would come up with, usually at my expense. It was fun. Alan was fun and we all loved teasing each other.”
