Richard Gladwell, Rest in Peace

I was sad to hear this afternoon of the passing of Richard Gladwell, host of "With Heart and Voice" (Sunday evenings at 9 PM on WSCL.) A spokesperson from WXXI-FM in Rochester, NY said that Gladwell died peacefully at his home in upstate New York, Thursday morning October 15 at 10:25. With him was his wife, his granddaughter, and a friend. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in June, and was forced to give up his show (he had been planning to retire next year.) He was fortunate to spend his remaining time with his family and friends at his lakeside home. WXXI has been running repeats of his show, and will continue to do so until the end of the calendar year. The funeral will be private, but a memorial celebration is planned.
