The longtime Fox News personality and liberal pundit Alan Colmes is no more with us as Fox News announced the death of 66 years old Alan on their social media.
Alan Colmes died on 23rd February 2017, after he lost his battle with cancer. Colmes who hosted the program “Hannity and Colmes” with co-anchor Sean Hannity informed about his absence to the listeners in late January 2017. Alan, before taking his supposedly temporary leave from the show left an informal note to his listeners and said,
“As I previously mentioned on the show last year, there would be times I would be taking off from the show to deal with a medical issue. This is why I’ve been out recently and will be out this week as well. But I will be back taking your calls as soon as I can.” – Alan
This message if now seen can be heartbreaking as it can get and fans are still taking in his shocking death. Condolences are on the by colleagues and his listeners,
I didn't always agree with @AlanColmes and even argued on twitter with him. But he was always a nice person. Gone too soon. Godspeed. RIP— Rants Outloud (@RantsOutloud) February 23, 2017
The Fox News icon who died on Thursday morning is survived by his wife Dr. Jocelyn Elise Crowley, a professor at Rutgers University who also issued a statement in which she talks about her husband while requesting for privacy,
"Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66-years-old. He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley. He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn. He will be missed. The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time."
His co-anchor and dear friend Sean Hannity also said few words in Alan's remembrance,
"When Alan and I started 'Hannity & Colmes,' there wasn't a day that went by where we didn't say we were the two most fortunate men in all of television. Alan, in the midst of great sickness and illness, showed the single greatest amount of courage I've ever seen."
Rest in peace Alan Colmer. You will be missed.#Monica Crowley
