Boise Wants To Help Community Honor Larry Gebert
The city of Boise has not forgotten beloved KTVB meteorologist Larry Gebert who passed away this year. Larry was a force of nature promoting nonprofits every morning, volunteering to make a difference, providing accurate and dependable weather information, and most importantly, an outstanding family man.

Larry Gebert passed away from a heart attack on April 1st of this year while surrounded by his family. Larry was a tireless advocate who dedicated most of his life to promoting nonprofits such as the Boise Rescue Mission, Meals on Wheels, and the Make A Wish Foundation. Idahoans always found comfort in his presence and command of so many events. All of us miss him to this day.
