FORT WORTH, TX
Pauline Hancock, his wife of 59 years, said he died Friday at a
Fort Worth hospital. His funeral is pending in Memphis, Tenn.,
where he spent 24 years as a reporter and editor with the Memphis
Press-Scimitar before the afternoon daily closed in 1983.
It was there that he interviewed Presley several times and
became well-acquainted with the superstar. His wife said Presley
would casually drop by the Press-Scimitar newsroom to chat with
reporters. After the Press-Scimitar closed, he moved to the Fort
Worth Star-Telegram, where he retired in March 1992.
