In Memoriam

Age 70 … a full ‘three score and 10’ ... career spanned communications trifecta—journalism with United Press International … politics for Gov. Pete Wilson and Vice President George H.W. Bush … corporate at Irvine Co., trusted voice of Chairman Donald Bren … the ‘only person who could get it right for Mr. Bren,’ said Dan Young, Thomas’ colleague there … Bren ‘had enormous respect’ for him … local acolytes, protégés, known as Larry’s Kids … survived by daughter, Leigh Thomas Beach
