Willard Scott, longtime weatherman for 'Today,' dies at 87

The Today show said Scott died this week, according to fellow weatherman, Al Roker.
"We lost Willard Scott," Roker wrote on Twitter. "Passed peacefully at 87 surrounded by family, including his daughters Sally and Mary and his lovely wife, Paris. He was truly my second dad and am where I am today because of his generous spirit. Willard was truly a broadcast #icon."

Scott was known for doing a segment wishing Today show viewers who were 100+ years old Happy Birthday. He also created & preformed, from 1963–66, the character of Ronald McDonald.
