The entrepreneur and philanthropist died peacefully on June 29 at the age of 87 at his home in Beverly Hills. He was a principal original investor in the Weekly, served as chairman for many years, and also co-founded LA Style as a sister publication in the 1980s. "Without Pete Kameron, LA Weekly probably wouldn't exist," writes former Weekly publisher Michael Sigman. "And instead of spending 19 years at the paper, I might not have lasted three months."
