Nancarrow, a former anchor for San Diego FOX affiliate KSWB, died December 28 after battling cancer for almost a year.

“He advocated for the environment long before it was fashionable and taught a generation of television viewers and readers to be good stewards of our land, sea, and air,” said¬†Councilwoman and former KGTV reporter Marti Emerald as part of her tribute to Nancarrow’s 30-year career in San Diego.

His family has set up a donation fund to help pay for a new rooftop healing garden at Scripps Radiation Therapy Center in San Diego. Click here more info.
