You’ll be missed, Alex.
The Jeopardy! Host was so fun and full of life and entertained his fans to the fullest till his last breath. Trebek was suffering from pancreatic cancer and a while ago, updating his fans about his health the host wrote, “I feel the need to clarify my quote that, if my course of cancer treatment does not continue to work, I would consider stopping treatment. That quote from the book was written BEFORE my current regimen, and I was going through some bad times.”
Jeopardy! Wouldn’t be same without you, Alex Trebek. May your soul rest in peace.
