A groundbreaking former Editor of the Sussex Express, Peter Cavan Cooper, died last week at the age of 72.
Peter was responsible for seeing through the dramatic change of the county paper, which was launched in 1837, from broadsheet to tabloid format in September 1977.
He leaves three children and five grandchildren. He was immensely proud of his family, who were all devoted to him. He was divorced but remained good friends with his former wife, Ann, a fellow journalist.
