A well-known newspaper editor and journalist has passed away in northern Arizona.

Randy Wilson, the longtime managing editor of Flagstaff’s Arizona Daily Sun paper, died suddenly on Saturday afternoon. He was 65.

His cause of death was not immediately made public. Wilson started at the Daily Sun more than two decades ago as the city editor. He moved up to the managing editor position, where he was responsible for overseeing all content, from local news reporting to opinion columns and more. He also approved the layout of each issue prior to printing.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
