CLEVELAND — During the home opener on Saturday, the Cleveland Cavaliers paused to pay tribute to beloved broadcaster Fred McLeod.

McLeod, 67, passed away suddenly on September 9. He leaves behind his wife Beth McLeod, his three children and three grandchildren.

Beth, who is a dear friend and coworker here at FOX 8, has made it her mission to carry on his legacy. She recently gifted his ties to friends, colleagues and members of the Cavs along with a note.

“As Fred used to say with a smile on his face, ‘You gotta have a good tie guy!’ So now, please allow Fred to be each of YOUR tie guy with this tie from his personal collection!” Beth wrote.

Fans were also encouraged to wear a tie to Saturday’s game as a way to celebrate Fred’s life.
