Philadelphia TV sports anchor Gary Papa was declared dead after a prolonged and challenging battle with prostate cancer. Gary Papa was 54 years old at the time of his death.
Gary Papa used to me my favorite sports announcer and had his own unique lovable style of telling the commentary. He is one of the last greats in my opinion. They don’t make ’em like that any more.
Gary Papa became an employee of Action News in back in 1981 and he did his time there as a news sportscaster. After working on the job for nine years, he was promoted as the sports director. He deserved it truly.
Gary Papa is now survived by his wife, Kathy, and two sons.
