Sackets Harbor, N.Y. -It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we report the death of a beloved Central New York Newsman and one of our own.
Kevin Schenk passed away Friday after suffering a ruptured aortic aneurysm Thursday. He was 54 years old.
The beloved NewsRadio 570 WSYR and former television anchor is survived by his wife Lori, his sons Christopher and Michael, his daughter-in-law Mary, and several grandchildren, whom he loved immensely.
“Kevin was an outstanding journalist who loved to dig for a story and was always fair in his reporting,” says iHeartMedia Syracuse Market President Rick Yacobush. “As a coworker, Kevin was always there with his quick wit to put a smile on your face and he was a truly wonderful man. He will be greatly missed, by not just our colleagues, but by the listeners who depended on him every afternoon.”
Calling hours for Kevin will be held Monday from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Reed & Benoit Funeral Home in Watertown.
