Casey Kasem died on Sunday morning (June 15), according to his daughter Kerri‘s Facebook page.

The American Top 40 radio legend long suffered from advanced Parkinson’s Disease and dementia.

“Early this Father’s Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends,” Kerri wrote. “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.”

Casey was best known as the host of American Top 40 for over 20 years until Ryan Seacrest took his place in 2004. He also lent his voice for the famous role of Shaggy on Scooby-Doo.
