Friends, family and San Diego television viewers today were mourning the loss of longtime San Diego television journalist Loren Nancarrow, who died Saturday. He was 60.
Nancarrow passed away shortly after 6:30 p.m. Saturday, surrounded by his family, according to a statement on his Facebook page.
Nancarrow's television career spanned more than 30 years and included stints as a weatherman, anchor and a reporter on KGTV 10News, KFMB CBS8 and, most recently, KSWB Fox 5.
The five-time Emmy winner also co-authored four organic gardening books.
Nancarrow was diagnosed with stage three terminal brain cancer in February, and later retired from his anchor position at Fox 5. He called himself a “Brain Cancer Warrior,” and authored a blog.
He is survived by his wife, Susie, and children, Graham, Hannah and Britta.
A memorial paddle out and beach gathering to celebrate Nancarrow's life is scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday at South Cardiff State Beach, according to his Facebook page.
