GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) - Longtime Garden City Telegram reporter and managing editor John Frazier has died at the age of 85.

The Garden City Telegram (https://bit.ly/1eQKksr ) reports that Frazier died of pneumonia Monday in Dodge City.

Frazier started working for the Telegram in 1955 as a reporter and left for The Hutchinson News for a short time. He then returned to the Telegram in the early 1960s to be the managing editor, a position he held for about 30 years.

Former Telegram reporter Tim Unruh, who is now a reporter at The Salina Journal, remembered Frazier as a teacher and a “wonderful, poetic writer.”

A memorial service for Frazier is scheduled for March 29 at the Presbyterian Church in Garden City.
