Through Lundahl’s career from night cops reporter at the San Bernadino Sun to managing editor of the Reno Gazette-Journal, his passion for writing about people and their stories never wavered. Born in Rockford, Ill., in 1953, he graduated from the University of Redlands. Lundahl became city editor of the RGJ in 1994 and spent a total of 23 years in a variety of supervising and editing positions. At the time of his death in 2010, he was also president of the Nevada Press Association. Lundahl’s calm and compassion, his attention to detail in the stories he wrote and edited, and his knowledge of local history made him a leader in the newsroom.
