Roy Herburger, long time local newspaper publisher, dies

Roy Herburger, publisher/owner of Herburger Publications, has passed away from the effects of Parkinson's Disease. 

On personal note, I don’t think I ever met a more positive man in my life than Roy. He always had a big smile, greeted me warmly (even in his later years) and was so encouraging. 

Yes, he is an icon. If you looked up the Spirit of Elk Grove in the dictionary, Roy’s photo would be there. Our city, the surrounding region and the newspaper industry has suffered a big loss.

More details on a memorial service and arrangements coming .....
