    Default Huell Howser, We Hardly Knew Ya.

    Apparently died of natural causes at 67. No links available yet.

    Sad day. I do believe he just retired suddenly a month or so ago.

    Posted thoughts on my facebook page, but really saddened about this. Watching Huell was always entertaining....even when it was obvious that Huell was annoying the heck out of whomever he was interviewing.

    A tribute show tonight at 10pm on KCET.

    From the LA Times article linked above, by Adam Carolla -

    "He had this Gomer Pyle thing going, which is hard to do," said Carolla, the comedian who enjoyed mocking Howser. "He would talk to people, just an ordinary person, and seemed genuinely interested and surprised at anything they said, treating them like they were amazing. He was such a kind soul. The world could use a few more Huell Howsers."

    RIP Huell.

    So sad! He just donated all of his stuff to Chapman University and spoke quite wistfully about how he'd liked to be remembered; I wondered at the time whether something was wrong with his health.

    You'd have to say, he had an amazing life. RIP Huell.
