KREM-TV weatherman Peter Colford dies
Colford was diagnosed with cancer in December. His wife, Pam, and his father were with him when he died, a statement from the television station said.
He had not been on the air for several months.
Colford began his television career at KMVT in Twin Falls, Idaho, in 1984. He was hired as KREM’s main weather anchor in Spokane in 1986.
His first year here, he began doing brief gardening segments with horticulture specialist Phyllis Stephens. The pieces eventually became the regular “Peter’s Garden” feature.
A native of North Reading, Mass., he received his bachelor’s and master’s degree in theater from Salem State College.
“You realize there are a whole lot of good people out there. One begins to learn don’t ever forget them, because there’s a whole lot more of them than the bad guys,” Colford said in the interview.
Funeral arrangements were pending.
