Several of you have been asking. The funeral for Mark Lacter will be held Sunday, Nov. 24 at 12 noon at Hillside Memorial Park, 6001 W. Centinela Avenue, Los Angeles 90045. Laura Levine, Mark's wife, says that a reception will follow in Cheviot Hills. Maps will be given out at the funeral.
Mark, the editor of LA Biz Observed since 2006, died on Nov. 13 after suffering a stroke. Mark was a respected figure in Los Angeles journalism for a long time and his death has brought about an outpouring of emotion and affection. Laura's spirits have been lifted by the messages. She just wishes Mark were around to enjoy them.
I talk about Mark with Steve Chiotakis at the conclusion of our weekly LA Observed segment on KCRW this evening at 6:44 p.m.
