Photographer Len Vaughn-Lahman dies
Len Vaughn-Lahman, a Mercury News photographer for nearly 30 years died Friday following a year-long battle with cancer at age 55, the Merc reports. "His favorite motto," said Sharon, his wife of 12 years, "was 'Drive it like you stole it.' And he ran his life that way. He lived life fully. His favorite thing was being a foreign correspondent, traveling to Iraq, to Afghanistan, any place there was a war. He was an adrenaline junkie. He liked being put into different situations and then figuring out how to dig out."
