Please keep my friend Charlie and his family in your prayers. Charlie’s Mom, Kay, died in a fire this week.
WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes confirmed that his mother, Katherine B. Sykes, died in afire at her home in Mequon this afternoon. She was 87 years old.
Kay Sykes was a warm, intelligent, and generous woman who took great pride in her son’s work as a writer and broadcaster. She delighted in her three grandchildren and was very proud of their academic, athletic, and artistic achievements. She loved books, music, and nature. She lived a full life, and her family and friends will deeply miss her.
Charlie wishes to thank his listeners for their thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. And he wants to express his deep gratitude to all of you who have offered your condolences.
Kay was a lovely, warm , fascinating woman. We’ll all miss her.
