I’m literally holding back tears as I write this.

Some of my most treasured memories in life were spent just watching Jeopardy on the couch with my family. Such joyous times, and so much of it was just because of Alex’s calm and benevolent presence, his soothing voice, and his friendly demeanor.

RIP and thanks for the memories.

We love you Alex.

R.I.P Alex Trebek! You fought really hard to beat this terrible disease you did not lose his fight. You lived graciously and courageously with it until the very end. In many, many ways, by inspiring and teaching us, you won your battle in other very important ways. You were a wonderful role model right to the end. He did not lose his battle with cancer. He won his battle with cancer and, sadly, he also died from cancer.
