FOX4 weatherman Don Harman died of suicide

With his fans and colleagues struggling to understand the sudden death of popular FOX4 weatherman Don Harman, the station told viewers this morning that the 41-year-old died by his own hand.

His colleagues were visibly shaken during their morning broadcast, fighting back tears and sharing laughs about their friend. They said they, in addition to Harman’s family, attempted to help him through his depression.

The FOX4 team also shared some of Harman’s lighter moments. (I’ve not figured out how to embed certain types of video yet; I hope I will soon)

Lastly, a fund benefiting Harman’s young daughter has been set up:

Don Harman Memorial Fund
Benefiting local Kansas City Charities
c/o Tightwad Bank
1160 SE Highway 7
Tightwad, Missouri 64735

The station said the town’s funny name made it a favorite of the weatherman.
