Posted at 3:09 PM, Dec 27, 2015

"We want lots of lights!" is something that Bob Lovejoy's sister, Diane, said he heard a lot.

The sound and lighting engineer and true Buffalonian lost his battle to terminal brain cancer on Christmas Eve. He was 64.

His work with WKBW began with the Variety Kids Telethons and he later found himself helping out with AM Buffalo. His expertise, being in sound and lighting, was also used to design and build many sets used for TV.

His funeral is January 2 at Forest Lawn and is open to the public. He will be laid to rest at 11 a.m.
