Condolences to family and friends of longtine SACRAMENTO radio personality RICK STEWART, who died FRIDAY afternoon at MERCY SAN JUAN HOSPITAL in SACRAMENTO after a long battle against kidney cancer at 63.
STEWART (real name ERIC CRONE) was most recently anchor of CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFBK-A/SACRAMENTO's noon news and previously anchored the station's afternoon news; he was also known for years on the old Country KRAK-A and, later at KFBK sister Talk KSTE-A. A former NASCAR driver, STEWART remained active as the announcer for many racing events. He is survived by wife NINA and children MICHAEL and ANDREA.
A memorial service is in the process of being planned; in the meantime, the family is asking that donations in lieu of flowers be made to EASTER SEALS or a worthy food pantry.
