KDKA Mourns Loss Of Freelance Photographer

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It is with deep sadness that we tell you about the death of one of the behind-the-scenes people here at KDKA who went above and beyond to bring you the news.

Tom Sypula was a freelance photographer who out-hustled everyone in town to bring us the news from the Washington County area.

On Sunday morning, Sypula was on the scene of a pre-dawn accident, doing what he always did to get the story. Tragically, he collapsed and died at the scene.

Sypula was battling cancer and was mourning the loss of a son.

He leaves behind a wife and a daughter. They are in our prayers.

    I remember him at Washington Park one warm December day when my grandson and other kids were playing outside. The last time I saw him was in the middle of my street on August 4, 2010 when lightning destroyed my home. It seemed like I saw him a lot on the job and now I finally know his name. He will surely be missed.
