Watch: Alex Trebek Recorded An Inspiring Thanksgiving Message Before His Death

Longtime “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek may have passed, but that doesn’t mean he can’t still influence us for the better.

Prior to his death at age 80 after an uphill battle with pancreatic cancer, the game show host took the time to record a Thanksgiving message that the show released on Thursday on its official Twitter account.

In the 20-second message, Trebek asked his fellow Americans to be thankful despite all the pain they have experienced.

“Happy Thanksgiving, ladies and gentleman. You know, in spite of what America and the rest of the world is experiencing right now, there are many reasons to be thankful. There are more and more people extending helpful hands to do a kindness to their neighbors, and that’s a good thing,” he said.

Trebek concluded his message by advising people to “keep the faith.”

Trebek died on November 8 after a year and a half battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
