Houston News Photographer Passes Away


Sad news out of  KTRK in Houston.

Longtime News Photographer Bob Dows has passed away. 

Dows was most notably the photographer putting Marvin Zindler on TV every night along with producer Lori Reingold in the Action 13 unit. 

"I've had friends throughout my life, but I learned how loyal a real friend can be," Dows said in a panel discussion on Zindler's life in 2011. "Marvin, I think, worked very hard, very long and I think he worked very hard and very long to keep the team together. Because it meant a lot to him and it meant a lot to us."

KTRK abc13 reporter Deborah Wrigley wrote the following on her station Facebook page about Dows:

"You may not have known his name but for years, you saw his work. Bob Dows was Marvin Zindler's photographer, which was a job that required much patience and good humor. Bob had both in abundance. Tonight, after a long illness Bob passed away. He leaves behind a family of devoted friends he made through and at Channel 13 who will miss his smiles and friendship and his good soul."
