MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - H. Dean Stone, longtime editor of The Daily Times, has died. He was 92.

Smith Funeral and Cremation Service confirmed Stone’s death on Monday.

The newspaper (https://bit.ly/2dSHDw3 ) said Stone worked at The Maryville-Alcoa Daily Times during the summers of 1947 and 1948 and became Sunday editor in 1949 when the paper began publishing a Sunday edition. The Sunday edition didn’t survive, but Stone became managing editor of the daily paper as well as sports editor.

Stone worked at the paper for 66 years, outlasting four owners and six publishers and seeing the news move from hot type to computer-generated type to the internet.

Stone served on education foundations, established an ongoing service project that serves the needy at Christmas, led the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains Park Commission and scores of other organizations.

Funerals arrangements are incomplete.
