His career spanned the days of linotype machines to the computers that were to transform the newspaper industry as the world had known it.

Bob Beck, who served at the helm of the San Pedro News-Pilot for decades before he retired in 1991, died Saturday at the age of 84 from an abdominal aneurysm he'd had for several years. He had been diagnosed with lung cancer in February.
