According to CNN, the long-time radio DJ, voice actor, and show host, Casey Kasem, died early Sunday at the age of 82.
"Early this Father's Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends," wrote Kasem's family in a statement recently released. "Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken ... The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our Dad."
Kasem was known for his long running career as the host of "American Top 40." He was also the voice of Scooby-Doo's goofy side-kick, Shaggy. He made a solid mark on the shaping of American pop culture and will be truly missed.
