Gary Papa Passes On...

I join the fans, viewers and the 6ABC family in mourning the passing of Gary Papa. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and two sons. Channel 6 devoted their entire 90 minutes (5 p.m.-6:32 p.m.) to Gary's life and time at Channel 6. You can read about his life here

At the close of the 6 p.m. "Action News" they showed a 2 minute video montage of Gary played to the song "The Time of My Life" which was quite touching.

You can watch the announcing of Gary's death, by Jim Gardner,here.

Rest in peace Gary!

Youtube has the 11:00 tribute newscast from Friday night posted online ( and I found THIS too. The anniversary of PRIME TIME that Gary hosted. Nice to see now that he's gone.
