The Mirror is saddened to learn that former editor-in-chief Ed Quillen died unexpectedly Sunday, according to The Denver Post, which learned of his passing from his wife, Martha.
He was 62.
Quillen was a longtime contributor to The Post’s editorial section, writing mostly about life in the Colorado Rockies.
"Colorado has lost one of its most thoughtful and colorful characters," said Curtis Hubbard, The Post’s editorial page editor. "For decades, Ed's humor and keen eye shed light for Denver Post readers on topics ranging from our current politics to the state's rich history. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends."
Quillen was the editor-in-chief of The Mirror newspaper in 1970-71 and visited The Mirror's office on Feb. 28, 2009 for the newspaper's 90th birthday celebration.
