Press-Telegram journalist Larry Allison was 77

From the Press-Telegram obit:
LONG BEACH — A newsman to his core and to the end, Larry Allison spent 54 years in Long Beach journalism and worked in it until just days before he went into the hospital.
Allison died Sunday night from complications after a two-week battle with pneumonia. He was 77.
 
Beginning as a reporter at the Independent, Press-Telegram in 1957 and working in virtually every department in the paper through editor. He was until his final days both a voice of the community and the official voice of the paper as Editorial Page Editor.

I worked in the circulation department for several years at the PT and I got to know Larry Allison during this time. He was a gentleman and a real professional. He was one of the good guys in the newspaper business. Long Beach has lost an excellent journalist and a great guy.
