Dick Goddard Cause of Death – Dick Goddard, the long-lasting TV meteorologist in Cleveland who turned into a neighborhood legend, kicked the bucket Tuesday at age 89, his little girl reported on Facebook.
In June, Kimberly Goddard affirmed that her dad had tried positive for COVID-19.
The Akron local worked for the National Weather Service during the 1950s before beginning as a meteorologist at Cleveland’s NBC station in 1961. After five years, he bounced to WJW, where he spent the majority of his profession and developed a dependable after for his warm onscreen persona and open backing for creature causes.
Its absolutely impossible to quantify his commitments to our TV slot or our locale,” WJW-TV Vice President and General Manager Paul Perozeni said in an announcement. “Basically, WJW-TV is the house that Dick Goddard assembled.”
