In Memoriam: Lee Walczak

Bloomberg’s DC Bureau Chief Al Hunt sent the following notice to employees today:

    I am very sad to tell you that Lee Walczak passed away last night. he fought an extraordinarily courageous two year fight against incurable cancer. his grace and presence were inspiring; only a few weeks ago he was e-mailing story ideas. he made us better professionally; he was an even better person. the details of any services will be known in a few days; will keep everyone posted. i am sure his wife, maria, would love to hear any thoughts about lee. al

Walczar was a longtime Washington bureau chief for BusinessWeek and came over to Bloomberg in 2006. He had been with BusinessWeek for at least 20 years.
