Statement on the Passing of Alan Colmes

Alan Colmes passed away early Thursday, February 23, after a brief illness.

He was 66 years old.

He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley.

He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn.

He will be missed.

The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.

    I can’t believe it.

      I feel the same.. just in shock.

    This is terrible news, I have been following Alan since the early 90’s! RIP Alan, you will be missed. In the age of right wing radio, Alan was the one voice who spoke for me.

    RIP Alan. Didn’t agree with much of what you said, but you were a swell guy and I am tearing up hearing about your passing.

  7. Sam Savage February 23rd, 2017 at 10:01

    I didn’t always agree with him, but I enjoyed his squabbles with Hannity. RIP.

    obviously an administrator for his page,

  9. Mike February 23rd, 2017 at 10:05

    Rest in Peace Alan

  10. Roctuna February 23rd, 2017 at 10:06

    Like so many here, all I can say is Rest in Peace. I’ve made many online friends here and learned a lot, none of which would have happened without his vision for this page

    • whatthe46 February 23rd, 2017 at 10:08

      well said Roctuna.

      • wiredone February 23rd, 2017 at 10:12

        We have lost another powerful voice of reason. At least he won’t have to deal with his sister in-law any longer.

  11. Angelo_Frank February 23rd, 2017 at 10:08

    Alan will sorely be missed. RIP.

  12. whatthe46 February 23rd, 2017 at 10:10

    To Alan’s family, I’m sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing a wonderful person with all of us here who loved him too.

  13. Budda February 23rd, 2017 at 10:10

    Gees, proving once again that the good die young. He will be missed.

  14. Mark Purleeonis February 23rd, 2017 at 10:12

    RIP Alan. About 5 years ago I worked way up in another state and had a ton of time on my hands outside of work hours. So I would do computer projects and listen to his streaming Fox Radio show. He was always a provacative guy. I didn’t agree with him, but I liked his personality and his ability to hold a very intelligent discussion. At some point I was hoping to maybe hear some more some day. Sorry to hear this good man is gone.

  15. WhataGuy February 23rd, 2017 at 10:13

    I never knew Alan, but I feel like I lost a Good Friend.I will miss his warm voice and his Strength. My condolences to his wife and family. He was a good soldier in the fight for the down trodden.Rest in Peace my Brother.

  16. MrQuinnNYC February 23rd, 2017 at 10:23

    My deepest condolences to his family, friends, loved ones.
    May he rest in peace.

  17. Paul D Mink February 23rd, 2017 at 10:23

    Take beckel with you

    • Rudewaitress February 23rd, 2017 at 10:37

      Would make more sense to take that lying Hannity with him!

    • Heebeejeebee February 23rd, 2017 at 10:37

      I don’t agree with either of their views either but always enjoy the vigorous debate.

  18. eyelashviper February 23rd, 2017 at 10:26

    Very saddened to hear this, like many here, was looking forward to his return.
    In addition to a long career and surviving the slings and arrows at Fox, he built this wonderful site, and created a family here. So many of you are like friends, and I hope the site will go on, a testament to his desire to inform, question, and encourage people to read, listen, and think.

    We’ve lost a powerful warrior in the battle against Trump. RIP sir…

  20. thephantomgourmet February 23rd, 2017 at 10:29

    He was the only class act Fox News has ever seen.

    • ClayNation February 23rd, 2017 at 10:37

      please keep it respectful.

    • Paul Mularz February 23rd, 2017 at 11:56

      Class Clown perhaps……..Not a big fan of his Liberal views…. i am still gonna miss his jaded views. He stood for what he believed in and wasn’t afraid to speak his mind. I always respect that in a person. Peace to you Alan.
