Steve Pool Death

Steve Pool, a Beloved Former Seattle Weatherman, Has Died of Alzheimer’s Disease!

On Friday, Steve Pool’s wife announced his death on Facebook. He was a popular former weather anchor in Seattle. Pool retired after nearly fifty years at KOMO News due to his Alzheimer’s condition.

“I am here to share the sad news that my dear husband, my love, has passed away from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. He fought this terrible disease privately for several years, and with every ounce of his being,” wrote his wife.

Pool left the television industry in 2019 after a 40-year career. Pool attended Tyee High School and the University of Washington before beginning his career as a writer for KOMO News, as reported by that outlet.

Before becoming a meteorologist, he worked as a program producer, a sports reporter, and a feature reporter. Among Pool’s many accolades are seven Emmys and a prize from the Sigma Delta Chi Society of Professional Journalists.

Aside from the two medals he won at the New York International Film Festival, he also has an American Scene Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, two ‘Telly’ Awards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Religious Broadcasting.

In addition, he was a member of a news team that took home the Edward R. Murrow Award for Outstanding Newscast in the United States.

“He was an extraordinary man, husband, father, and good friend to many. Please know that he truly loved his job and this community and felt so privileged to be a part of your lives. You were all so good to him and thereby good to us. Our hearts are irretrievably broken. Please say a prayer for him and our family,” wrote his wife.

His wife Michelle and their daughters Lindsey and Marissa are left behind by Pool.
