OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A former publisher at the Standard-Examiner newspaper in Ogden has died from the side effects of treating an inoperable brain tumor for more than 30 years.

The newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1UBpmwY) that Randall C. Hatch was diagnosed with the tumor in 1984, a few years into his tenure as managing editor. He died May 26 at age 64.

Hatch began as an assistant managing editor in 1980 and moved up the ranks until he was named publisher, a position he retired from in 1993.

Hatch held an MBA and Masters of Journalism from Columbia University, and twice served on the panel that decides Pulitzer Prize winners.

Hatch also served on community advisory boards for institutions McKay Dee Hospital and Ogden School District.

His funeral is set for Saturday.
