Rod McKee Death – Obituary: WBRZ Chief Photographer Rod McKee Cause of Death

Rod McKee Obituary – It is with the deepest sadness and shock that we have to report that Rod McKee went to be with the Lord.

We found out about the recent death of Rod McKee Today. This was made known to us through the tributes posted on social media platforms by friends and family.

According to a Facebook user Brittany Weiss;

My heart is shattered. Our Chief Photographer passed away today after a long fight with cancer.
For the last few years, I have started my workday with Rod McKee. Our mornings often start with a text. GM… here’s the plan for today. Meet you there at this time.
We’d take in the lay of the land and Rod would set up the cameras, multiple angles, microphones, making sure all was synced and recording.
“Clap once,” he’d say.
From there we were off and running, often meeting people at their lowest point. He captured the images and the sounds, I asked the questions – but sometimes he’d chime in too.
He knew everyone. I mean everyone. We were constantly running into someone he went to school with, knew from church, or from “way back when.” That’s what made him such a good photojournalist – he knew people and knew what made a great story.
He’s covered everything in this city – the good and the bad.
These last few weeks he’s been in a lot of pain. I knew it. He’d shrug it off and keep at it. There’s was news to do! Nat sound to capture! Stories to tell!
He loved his family and gushed over his grandson. He loved Baton Rouge and WBRZ.
He had the best laugh that you’d hear across the station and couldn’t help but smile.
He was my partner and together we helped people. He also helped me – lately by sharing his personal strength.
The days ahead won’t be the same without those GM texts, but there’s plenty to smile about. I will remember our stories, jokes, and mornings together – spent capturing the images he loved to share with viewers. Rest In Peace, @southbatonrougemckee.

Rod McKee Obituary Poem


“Death is absolutely nothing.
It doesn’t matter.
I’ve only snuck into the room next door.

Nothing has taken place.

Everything hasn’t changed at all.

You are you, and I am I,

… the previous existence that we had with such affection remains unaltered.

Whatever we were to one another, that is still how we are.

Call me by the well-known name you know.

Talk about me in your usual informal manner.

Make no distinction in your tone.

Avoid exaggerating your solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we do every time we hear one of our favorite inside jokes.
Have fun, grinned, and prayed for me.
Let my name continue to be well-known, as it has always been.
Let it be said naturally, without the presence of a ghostly presence.

All that life has ever meant is life.
It is exactly as it always has been.
There is unwavering and uninterrupted continuity.
What else might this death be than a little accident?

Why should the fact that I am invisible cause me to be forgotten?
I’m only waiting for you for a brief moment somewhere nearby, right around the corner.

It’s all good.
Nothing is damaged or lost.
Everything will return to its previous state in just a moment.
When we next meet, we’ll laugh so hard at the hassle of saying goodbye!”

Praise the life of the deceased, and leave a benevolent word for him. Companions, Family, and Friends have spilled out their lament and sympathy to respect the passing ceaselessly of Rod McKee.
