(KTVI) – Today we remember our friend, John Gadson. John passed away Wednesday morning after a battle to recover from brain surgery he had in November 2010.

John Gadson joined FOX 2 as a reporter on March 27, 2000. He came to KTVI from our sister station, WHBQ FOX 13, in Memphis, Tennessee. Gadson graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis with a degree in education. He taught high school for nine years before getting into broadcasting.

John also suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease.  His family is asking that donations be sent to the St. Louis chapter of the charity.

We will miss you, friend.
