Memorial services set for former KSAT anchor Bob Salter

Preliminary cause of death released


SAN ANTONIO – Memorial services have been set for former KSAT 12 News anchorman Bob Salter.

Salter's family will host a memorial service at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 27, at Epworth United Methodist Church at 5718 Pecan Valley Drive. 

The former newsman was found dead May 22 in his Hill Country home. He was 61.

Salter's preliminary cause of death was arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease, Kerr County Justice of the Peace J.R. Hoyne said. A final ruling will be made when toxicology reports are received in a few weeks. 

Salter was a TV anchorman in San Antonio during the 1980s and '90s.

During his successful TV career, Salter took up flying. He loved it so much, he switched career fields and eventually became an aeromedical helicopter pilot.

Salter is survived by his three children, two grandchildren, his parents and two brothers.

In lieu of flowers, a tax-deductible contribution can be made to the group that operates Cannon Field, where Salter's ashes will be scattered.  

Salter was an active member of Alamo Liaison Squadron and had been involved at the small-flying history museum that restores and flies World War II era aircraft for about 30 years.
