David Colker


David Colker writes and edits obituaries – a beat perhaps foreshadowed by being on the Timothy Leary death watch in 1996 when he took the assignment so seriously he was at Leary’s bedside when he died. Colker finds it fascinating to put together profiles of the various newsmakers, celebrities, artists and other interesting people we feature on the news obit pages, even if the subjects never get the chance to read them.
