DENVER (KDVR) – Les Shapiro, a famous sports athlete, has passed away after a battle with lung cancer. He is 65 years old.
Shapiro has been a fixture in Colorado sports broadcasts for decades on radio and television, including FOX31 Sports.
He died Saturday at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., after a five-year battle with lung cancer. He has never smoked in his life.
Shapiro is known for his vast knowledge of sports and strong on-screen views. Off-screen, he enjoys working and building relationships in the sports, journalism, and Colorado communities.
