WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — A grandson of late news anchor Walter Cronkite who voiced Dennis the Menace on film has died.

Colby College President David Greene says student Peter Cronkite took his own life over the weekend in Maine. He was weeks away from graduation.

Cronkite was sports editor of the campus newspaper and was on the rugby team. He was also a film enthusiast who, as a boy, served as the voice of Dennis the Menace in a 2002 animated movie.
