By: Stacia Glenn | Tacoma News Tribune

William Honeysett may have been soft-spoken, but his actions spoke volumes.

He made groundbreaking changes at the Tacoma News Tribune during his tenure as publisher, was a key player in several community building projects in the 1990s, and was lauded for his civic involvement.

Honeysett, 77, died Sunday of natural causes after suffering from Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

He was an ‘I want to be like him when I grow up’ kind of guy,” his 21-year-old granddaughter, Lauren Schilter, said.
