“Early this Father’s Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends. Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken. Thank you for all your love, support and prayers. The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our Dad.

With love, Kerri, Mike and Julie.”

The iconic radio voice was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2007 and later suffered from dementia and sepsis.

After Casey Kasem’s Parkinson’s diagnosis he signed a document giving his oldest children authority over his medical care, CNN reported.

When his health began to deteriorate six years later a battle between the Kasem children and his wife of 33 years ensued over his medical care.
