Willard Scott Death – Obituary News : Beloved weatherman for years on NBC’s “Today” show has died.
We are sad to report that beloved weatherman for years on NBC’s “Today” show has died .
Willard Scott, former longtime weatherman for ‘Today,’ who was known for his outgoing, jovial personality, and for celebrating the lives of viewers who had reached their milestone 100th birthdays, has died, according to the NBC show. He was 87.
Tributes poured in from the general public on social media after it was announced that he passed away.
Katie Couric 2h · I am heartbroken that the much-loved Willard Scott has passed away. Willard played such an outsized role in my life…whether it was as the Ronald McDonald of my childhood, “Joy Boy” of radio in Washington DC, and of course, as a ubiquitous presence on The Today Show (1980-2015). Willard was as warm and loving and generous off-camera as he was on. I last saw him at the funeral of Jim Vance, the longtime lead anchor of WRC-TV in Washington DC. Willard, you didn’t make it to the front of the Smucker’s jar but you changed so many lives for the better. You will be missed.

At the end of his weather report he would do his Smuckers jam/jelly commercial. He would wish someone a happy birthday who had to be real old, I guess, he would put their name on the Smuckers jar! I believe he had a picture to go with name! We sent in my grandmother’s name/picture when she turned a 100 and of course, it thrilled my grandmother too death! He was one of a kind! RIP Willard Scott!
