Eddie Stephens, a local father, also brought his kids to visit Trebek’s star.

“I almost felt like if I got the right answer (on “Jeopardy!”) and he looked into the camera, I always felt like he was looking at me.  That was the charisma he had on TV,” Stephens said.

Fans also say Trebek’s role on the game show was one like a teacher and mentor who helped contribute to their education and made them more well-rounded as individuals.
