Condolences to PREMIERE NETWORKS host and THEBLAZE founder GLENN BECK on the passing of his father WILLIAM "BILL" BECK, who died SATURDAY (3/29) at 86. The elder BECK ran a bakery in MOUNT VERNON; GLENN BECK raced back to WASHINGTON State WEDNESDAY to be with his father
THEBLAZE CEO CHRIS BALFE posted on BECK's website, "It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news that GLENN’s father passed away at the age of 86. GLENN’s father was a man who understood hard work, believed in the promise of AMERICA and will be missed by his children and grandchildren. Times like these remind us what is important in life and GLENN and his wife are deeply grateful for your thoughts and prayers. He asks that, in lieu of flowers or donations, you would do one act of kindness for someone in your life and help spread the universal message of love."
