There’s no question that long-time “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek was a legend – not because of the show he hosted, but because of the way he bravely battled pancreatic cancer.

Trebek died on Nov. 8 after a lengthy battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The longtime “Jeopardy!” host not only kept fans updated on his health battle every step of the way, but he continued to do his job hosting the popular trivia show as well.

Speaking on the “Today Show,” the game show’s executive producer Mike Richards shared some insight into how the 80-year-old television icon spent his last day on Earth.

“Even in his book, he described that he wanted his final day to be sitting on his swing next to his wife, Jean, and kind of watching the horizon and he got to do that,” Richards said in an excerpt from his interview shared on the show’s Twitter.
