Steve Grayson, photographer

CoverAlumni of the old Herald-Examiner received word this weekend that photographer Steve Grayson passed away. I have no details, but someone who knew him circled Grayson in the front of the newsroom scene on the cover of the paper's final issue. He had shot recently for Wire Image, which sent out word that he died of a heart attack. There's apparently a memorial service on Friday morning at Ashley and Grisgby Mortuary on South Central Avenue.
