Huell Howser Died of Prostate Cancer

Categories: Breaking News, TV
Golden Californian Huell Howser died at his Palm Springs home Jan. 7 of complications from prostate cancer, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Health.

So reports TMZ, which claims to have obtained a copy of the longtime public television host and producer's death certificate.

Howser was cremated and had his ashes spread off the LA County coast, TMZ adds.

Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge was scheduled to host a public memorial this  afternoon for the longtime California Gold host at the Griffith Observatory. Shuttles are set to whisk fans, family and friends to the observatory in time for a sunset memorial.

Looks like Huell ordered himself up a beautiful day.

wow, I respect the Howser family and friends privacy but I think alot of people would agree with me that more publicized public memorial would have been appropriate. I wish I could have attended the one in LA. So long Huell. Miss you much.
