Sam Champion's father passes away in Houston

In the past, I blogged how the parents of ABC Good Morning America weather anchor Sam Champion live in Houston. Sadly, his father passed away earlier this week:

"After a life of service to his country and his family, Lt. Col. James H. Champion, U.S. Marine Corps (retired), passed away last night in Houston, Texas," "Good Morning America" senior executive producer Jim Murphy wrote in an e-mail to the show's staff today. "He was better known to us as Sam Champion's dad. Sam, his sister Teresa and his mom, Sylvia, were all together with the Lt. Col. at the end." READ THE REST

ABC News says In lieu of flowers the family respectfully requests any donations in memoriam be made to:

MD Anderson Cancer Center (RE: Lt. Col. J. H. Champion)
PO Box 4486, Houston, TX 77210
