Newspaper icon Bob Allen dies at 91

Bob Allen

Bob Allen, former publisher of The Wake Weekly died today at home surrounded by family and friends.

He was 91.

Bob was a fixture in North Carolina journalism for over seventy years.

I had the pleasure of working with Bob for a couple of years when I ran The Butner Creedmoor News and he would help me edit my pages. His encouragement and praise meant a great deal to me.

The staff of The White Street Journal sends our thoughts and prayers to the Allen family.

Goodbye, Bob.

Jay Lamm, publisher
