We are deeply saddened to share the news that Richard Gladwell passed away on Thursday morning, October 15 at 10:25. He was with his wife, granddaughter, and a dear friend, and died quietly and peacefully.
Richard was diagnosed with brain cancer in June. After surgery he was able to spend time with his extended family, including several weeks at a lake house in upstate New York. Throughout his illness he was surrounded by family and friends in his beautiful sunroom looking out on his beloved garden.
There will be a private funeral for family and close friends; a public celebration of Richard’s life will be held shortly thereafter. More information about the public celebration will be forthcoming, once the family has gathered in Rochester, NY, and a date has been chosen.
Please join us in celebrating the life of a wonderful broadcaster and a lovely human being. He will be missed, but we are all better for having known Richard Gladwell.
