Today Show crew member Dave Anderwkavich has passed away. Dave died last week but the cause of his death was not made known to the public.
Dave’s death was announced by a member of the crew today, Monday May 11 2020.
Co-anchor, Hoda Kotb described Dave as a vital memeber of the crew in Studio 1A for more than 20 years.
“We want to honor a beloved member of our Today family we lost over the weekend,” he said.
“There was no moment that any of us worked in the studio that Big Dave didn’t say, ‘Hey, Al, hey, Craig, how you doing? How was your night?'” Kotb remembered, referencing co-hosts Al Roker and Craig Melvin.
Roker called Anderkavich “a gentle giant” and Guthrie added, “He was a caretaker. He always said, ‘Watch your step,’ and he always watched us. And we just send all of our love to his family, remember him fondly.”
Last two months, Today show member, Larry Edgeworth died after testing positive for COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus.
