Clarence Falvey, a printer who worked at the Las Vegas Optic for nearly a third of its 131-year history, died Tuesday.
Falvey worked at the Optic from 1959 to 1999. That’s a long time for an employee at this newspaper; currently, the paper’s longest-serving employee, Michael Pacheco, has been here a dozen years.
When Falvey began at the Optic, he initially worked with “hot type.” The type eventually turned cold, with the advent of “offset” printing, and at the same time, Falvey’s position rose, to mechanical superintendent.
