Alex Trebek's wife, Jean Currivan Trebek, is looking back with love. The widow of the beloved TV icon took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a heartfelt memory of her late husband.
Jean posted a romantic flashback photo from her and Alex's wedding in 1990. In the snapshot, Alex is sliding the ring on the beautiful bride's finger during their gorgeous ceremony.
"My family and I sincerely thank you all for your compassionate messages and generosity," Jean captioned the photo, in which the always-classy Jeopardy host looked particularly chic in a white tuxedo, while Jean beamed in a striking white wedding dress.
"Your expressions have truly touched our hearts. Thank you so very, very much," Jean wrote. "Many Blessings to all, Jean Trebek."
"He had a nice final day. He was out on his swing that he loved with his wife and surrounded by family," Richards shared. "It was a very peaceful day, there were laughs, and then he went to sleep."
"If you know Alex, he did everything that perfectly and even his last day was done that perfectly. I just love that he had a nice, a good last day," he added. "Ultimately, his family came back into town. He was surrounded by everyone and I think he knew that it was his time. He was very at peace with that."
