Recently, we lost a close member of the WeatherNation family. Our meteorologist Chris Bianchi lost his father, Carlos J. Bianchi, suddenly on February 24.
Described as a happy natured, upbeat man, who deeply cared about his community, the Bianchi family plans to celebrate the life of their amazing father, husband, brother, uncle, and friend.
In a string of tweets, Chris shared good memories of his father, and extends his thanks to all who have reached out in support.
In lieu of flowers, the Bianchi family has asked friends and family to consider making small donations to two charities that Carlos cared for deeply in his community.
We would like to honor the entire Bianchi family by helping them raise funds in Carlos’ memory.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathy and support to Chris, and his entire family.
