Richard Dawson Dead

The legendary ‘Family Feud’ host passed away surrounded by family after battling esophageal cancer — how sad.

Television personality Richard Dawson has died.

Richard, who was 79, passed away on June 2 after a courageous battle with esophageal cancer, his son Gary Dawson revealed on Facebook.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my father passed away this evening from complications due to esophageal cancer,” he wrote. “He was surrounded by his family. He was an amazing talent, a loving husband, a great dad, and a doting grandfather. He will be missed but always remembered…”

Richard was best known for hosting Family Feud from 1976-1985, as well as for a brief stint from 1994-1995.

We wish Richard’s family the best during this difficult time.

– William Earl
