Johnny Bough is the former pressman at the Daily Eastern News.
He was a sincerely friendly person, who never seemed out of place in a newsroom full of full-of-themself young Newsers. He constantly showed immense patience as we constantly blew deadlines (and I was responsible for more than one blown deadline as I recall).
He had surgery for cancer and I hear he had contracted an infection. He was 73.
I am reminded that newspapers do not spring, full-formed, from the minds of the reporters and editors who write for them.
They are works of art, lovingly crafted by men like Johnny Bough.
