As much as it pains us, sometimes we need to be the deliverer of bad news. That is just how this business works. Let me tell you, it has been on heck of a week for bad news. The week started with the tragic car wreck that took young actor Paul Walker’s life, and now we have news of another tragic car wreck taking the life of another talented personality on the rise. His name is Bill Beckwith, and he was a carpenter on the HGTV home improvement show, Curb Appeal.
The story is that Bill Beckwith was driving his motorcycle this past Monday in San Francisco, when his bike collided with a car, killing the young carpenter. HGTV released a statement about it, expressing their deep sadness at this loss. The reality is, it really has been a trying week for many people. This is the kind of week that makes you look at the TV and say to yourself: Think I am gonna start taking the bus to work. CNN has some more details about the tragedy.
Mainly, we just want to express our sympathies to HGTV, and all of the people who knew and loved Bill Beckwith. Loss is never easy, especially around the holidays.
