NEW from @ScottMcConnell9: Wick Allison, the publishing executive to whom we owe much of our success, has passed away at the age of 72. “I am enormously thankful that Wick entered the TAC universe, sorry that he is gone so soon.” https://t.co/bZQPSSPW02

Wick’s turnaround of @amconmag was before my time, but I met Wick Allison once at a magazine event and he mentioned that he liked the direction of our @NewUrbs stuff. I told him it was an area of interest for me as well, and he had a special New Urbanism issue of D mailed to me. https://t.co/tF69vGBiFm

It’s a blessing to devote your life to something you love. And I know Wick Allison loved Dallas. The city has lost a native son, and his family has lost a loved one. My heart goes out to Christine and his daughters.

My colleague @roddreher
says it all here. And I remember the re-launch party at Jon Utley’s home, turning a page on @amconmag ‘s tumultuous fiscal times, thanks to Wick Allison. His energy and commitment saved TAC. RIP.

Wick Allison was extremely generous and helpful, and I owe him a lot in my own writing career. He was a remarkable man, and the world is a much poorer place without him. My condolences to his family. May God grant his soul rest where the righteous repose.
Rest Peacefully, Wick Allison.
A true mensch who will be missed by all who knew him.
Sending love & good thoughts to Christine and your amazing daughters.
See you around, amigo. https://t.co/gj2XrHvpSK
