Jeopardy was around long before Trebek and will be on a long time after.

(Art Fleming was the original host and in an eerie coincidence also passed away from pancreatic cancer)

He did, however, take it to a completely different level once it was syndicated and not a daily game show as its predecessor was.

Just such a great Canadian and by all accounts a true gentleman in a business bereft of them.

RIP good man, you have earned it in spades.

Trebek said he does want the series to go on and he did have input as to who the new host will be. But like someone else said in regards to the price is right. It will go on, but just won't be the same.

I'm gonna miss that guy. Like many here, I played along at home.
grew up with him. One of the few people loved the world over.

I have his new autobiography on order at the library. can't wait to read it.

They played the Jeopardy theme on the bells at Parliament Hill today.

Very nice call by whoever came up with that idea.

Damn this really hurts. Trebek was the full package, with smarts, humour, charisma, and the ability to rock an epic stache.

My favourite moments on Jeopardy! were his perfect pronunciations of foreign words and the subtle digs when contestants gave a dumb answer or went deep into the negative. The show format was good on its own but Trebek made it great.

Also at this time I can’t help but be reminded of Cindy Stowell. FU cancer.

RIP to a Canadian legend.

I've always loved Jeopardy for the family memories with my Grandpa, nice that so many share the same memory.

RIP Alex

Normally Celebrity deaths dont really bother me but there have been a few I can think of that have actually made me emotional and this is one of them. You missed on key attribute though...kindness. He was so kind that even the mildest zing from Trebek was like being kicked by a Mule.

Its not just that its Trebek, its what Jeopardy means to us.

This is a TV trivia gameshow.

A trivia gameshow that has brought families together to watch, paid scholarships, prize money for teachers and students and generally helped educate and inspire countless people and he was the figurehead for that.

The only solace I take is that his pain has now ended and, knowing that it was coming, he was prepared and graced us with his presence.

RIP and Godspeed you magnificent man.

I hope after the funeral they shave his moustache and cast it in Bronze and put it in the Smithsonian or something.

In that Cheers scene if you replace Norm with Wesley Snipes, what do you get?

I’ll be honest, I can’t bring myself to watch his final episodes. I find it too difficult.
Given time, I’m sure it’ll pass, but I can’t do it right now.

I was thinking about that concept as well.

Funny how certain celebrity deaths strike a chord. For me it was James Gandolfini, Anthony Bourdain, David Bowie and Prince...

Due to Alex and Jeopardy, I am incapable of participating in any other trivia game without phrasing my answer in the form of a question.

RIP Alex, you've been a big part of my life and I thank you for that.

Celebrity death almost never bother me, but this one makes me really sad.

I have just so many good memories of growing up watching the show and Trebek was just such a likable person.

It's not just personally having fond memories, but that they are shared memories with millions of other people.

Really glad he got the Order of Canada award being he died. He really deserved it.

If I was on a trivia show that wasn’t jeopardy I’d embarrass myself so bad for the same reason. Always in the form of a question.
