Dave Schwartz: Meteorologist for The Weather Channel Dies After Battle With Cancer, Network Says
Schwartz died Saturday after a 10-year fight with cancer, The Weather Channel said in a release. Schwartz worked for the network as an on-air meteorologist for more than 22 years.

This is what people are saying about him.

Life is just too fragile! The many years i've heard Dave Schwartz always starting every forecast with "my friend", and a tagline I sometimes say whenever I see people, because I treat them like friends, and that was what he was treating his viewers well until his cancer got worse.
He was one of my favorite meteorologists on The Weather Channel, I watched TWC a lot during my 4 years living back east.
May Dave Rest in Peace.

omg how sad is it that Dave Schwartz of the weather channel has passed away. H e made the expression [[my friends]] popular. I've watched him for many years so R.I.P.Dave Schwartz your weather forcast report will be missed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As a kid growing up watching The Weather Channel when it was The Weather Channel, I remember Dave. He was the big burley guy with that great baritone voice that was meant to be on tv. He always had a good sense of humor when it came to being on air and I believe it was that and his personality that made him one of the greats in the field. Sadly though, all things must come to an end. The voice I grew up listening to when I tuned in has been retired. Not once did he ever give up the fight and kept on pushing the envelope to the end.
My prayers go out to his family, co-workers, and all whom knew him well. He was a great guy to have heard on TV and I am glad I had the chance to have known him through what he did.
Catch that big cloud there Dave... and we shall see each other soon. RIP

So sad to lose someone that has become a friend to us. The Weather Channels' Dave Schwartz lost his battle with cancer and we would like to extend our deepest sympathy to his family. We will miss you Dave. May you experience fair winds and following seas on your cosmic journey into eternity

Damn. This was my favorite meteorologist from the Weather Channel. I used to come home in the early morning after work and watch this dude. You could tell he loved weather. He really got off on any tornado video. It's too bad cancer claimed him.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I grew up wanting to be a meteorologist and I watched the Weather Channel literally all day every day when I was younger. You can ask my family how into it I was. I still would love to pursue the career. Between this guy here and Mike Seidel, they were why I watched weather forecasts or storm stories whenever I could. This makes me sad to know Dave Schwartz passed away
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes I remember the days when Weather Channel first came on cable he going dearly missed he was one of my favorite meteorology weatherman I like when him and Vivian Brown what do the weather together rest in peace Dave
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Jim Cantore is fine for weather drama and such, I guess. But If I was flipping through channels and saw Dave Schwartz on the Weather Channel...I would always stop and watch, just to enjoy the rhythm and the pacing and the ad libs. RIP.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've always loved meteorology and have often thought that my true calling was to become a weatherman. I would have patterned my style after Dave's. He was the best in the business and he will be sorely missed. RIP
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Him and John hope were my two favorite weatherman growing up watching in the 90s and 2000s. Very knowledgeable, straight to the point, no hype, just reported the weather how it was suppose to be. Beat cancer twice but just found out the news that he lost his third battle to cancer. RIP Dave , the weather channel will miss you
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just sad to see him losing his battle with cancer yesturday, here is a look back at what he did as an on air Weather Channel Meteorologist. I will definitely miss Dave Schwartz at the weather channel but he will not be forgotten...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
His tenacity and talent informed and inspired all of us who love weather and television. He went back to work last week. That seemed to be a statement of his loyalty and devotion to weather and all of us. R.I.P Dave Schwartz and thank you!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brave. Inspirational, silly and kind. Looked forward to his silly antics, plus you could tell how much he really enjoyed his job. RIP Dave Schwartz! My sympathy to his wife and family!

So many posts this morning by meteorologists who were inspired by The Weather Channel's Dave Schwartz, and certainly by those who worked with him directly -- all attesting to what a fine, fun parson he was, as well as a dedicated professional. A great tribute to him.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
His charisma that telegraphed through your screen was also present in the studio. What made him my favorite colleague was his encouragement and sense of egalitarianism--no matter one's age or experience level.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is sad ... I just found out that he passed away from cancer yesterday. I watched Dave Schwartz a lot on The Weather Channel when I was in college and when I got home after an evening shift at work during my first couple of years at WRI. He always addressed his viewers as "my friend" and was entertaining as well as informative. Thought I'd post this to at least bring a smile or two and make the most of a sad occasion
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I didn't hear the announcement a year earlier on air but I knew Dave was not well. May he rest in peace with a heavens eye view of the weather. God Bless him and his family and the weather channel family, he will be missed.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I remember him fondly. His demeanor was bubbly and he was an excellent onn-the-air meteorologist. He didn't talk as loud or as fast as the other meteorologists but easy to understand. He was one of my favorites. This is a shock to me. Rest in Peace, Dave. You will be sorely missed.
