Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME On December 31, 1930, while attending a New Years Eve ball in Ogden, W.P. suffered a fatal heart attack. In a memorial editorial, Preston M. Budge wrote: "William Perry Epperson is dead! "The Master has gone; and the apprentice who tries to write of his going - as the Master has done for so many before - finds it hard indeed. The Master's mind could find the good in everyone; the Master's pen could put these thoughts in a form that was beautiful to read and never to be forgotten! Such a man should write his own obituary and leave to those he left behind merely the work of putting those thoughts into cold type. "He was utterly fearless when he knew that he was in the right and he made his papers an instrument with which to build the communities which they served. Many times he was criticized, but almost invariably the plans he advocated were found to be the best. In the little town of Kaysville, his handiwork is seen in almost every worthwhile public improvement. "He will be missed most of all by those who are active in public life. He has served in the Legislature as representative of Davis County; he has served as president of the Utah State Press Association; he has served on numerous state committees; and he has worked and guided in almost every public or political meeting or project in his city, county and state. He had friends in high places, and low places, and thousands of people called at his office in times of stress for consultation. "The state has lost one of its foremost citizens; his family has lost a wonderful father; his employees have lost a true and staunch friend; and his enemies have lost a man they respected even while they fought. This paper will carry no more of those brilliant and beautiful writings for which he was famous; and we can but do as he would have had us do - carry on!" JOHN F. FITZPATRICK, Salt Lake Tribune Born January 18, 1887 - Died September 11, 1960 Installed in Hall of Fame at Salt Lake City, 1979 That John F. Fitzpatrick, an ambitious but obscure 23-year old clerk for the Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail- 497
