New home for bench honoring Loren Nancarrow

SAN DIEGO - The memorial bench honoring beloved longtime San Diego television personality Loren Nancarrow has found a new home.

According to a post on a Facebook page for Nancarrow, the bench will soon move to the Besta Wan Pizza House in Cardiff.

The bench first appeared at Del Mar’s dog beach in January. Shortly after, the city posted a notice saying the bench needed to be removed. The city also said it wanted to work with the bench's creator to find a new spot to memorialize Nancarrow.

Nancarrow died Dec. 28 at the age of 60, following an 11-month battle with brain cancer.

His television career spanned more than 30 years and included stints as a weatherman, anchor and reporter on KGTV/10News, KFMB CBS8 and, most recently, KSWB Fox 5.

The five-time Emmy winner was also known as a passionate conservationist, co-authoring four organic gardening books.
