Willard Scott, beloved weatherman, dead at 87

 

Willard Scott, the jovial “Today” show weatherman and famous birthday well-wisher, whose boyish spirit brightened even dreary mornings for two generations of Americans, died Saturday. He was 87.

Al Roker, Scott’s “Today” show successor, shared news of Scott’s death on Instagram.

“Willard Scott passed peacefully at the age of 87 surrounded by family, including his daughters Sally and Mary and his lovely wife, Paris,” Roker wrote. “He was truly my second dad and am where I am today because of his generous spirit. Willard was a man of his times, the ultimate broadcaster. There will never be anyone quite like him.”

His cause of death was not released.

Scott joined the “Today” show in 1980 and was a constant presence beamed into millions of American homes for 30 years.
