Terry Sellards, former editor of The Berkeley Gazette

Terry Sellards, who worked at the Berkeley Gazette for 14 years, many of those as editor, died of heart failure in San Francisco in early March. There will be a memorial service for him at St. Agnes Church on Thursday March 27 at 7 p.m..

Sellards, 76, was an accomplished reporter, editor, publisher and politician, and held positions everywhere from Berkeley to Hong Kong to Australia. He was very involved in his community, even working as a phone volunteer for Alcoholics Anonymous in San Francisco when he became homebound.
