The New York Daily News reported on Monday that its publisher, Mark Sherman, had died.
Sherman had battled pancreatic cancer and was in hospice care.
His wife, Mary Sherman, died at age 90.
Sherman, who was born in North Carolina, was a veteran and newspaper reporter.
He served as a reporter for the Associated Press in Vietnam.
Sherman and Mary Sherman lived in Manhattan for years, and the couple married in 1952.
Shermen and Mary’s daughter, Carol, died in 2011, according to the AP.
Shermans family was said to be devastated by news of his death.
“Mark Sherman was truly a courageous man, whose unwavering dedication to covering the news made him the epitome of a journalist,” the AP said in a statement.
“He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, colleagues and readers around the world.”
A memorial service for Sherman will be held on Saturday, the AP reported.
Sherton’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the Vietnam War won him national acclaim, the newspaper said.
Sherson had also written for the Times in 1967 and 1969.
His Pulitzer-winning reporting on the Vietnam war won him the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting.
Sherfield died on Saturday.
Shermold’s wife, Ruth, died of cancer in 2008.
Sherhams granddaughter, Trish, told CNN that Sherman was “the most important journalist I’ve ever known.”
“I think he’s a great man,” Trish said.
“I think there’s a lot of people out there who love him and miss him.”
Sherman was known for his reporting on domestic violence, drug abuse, crime and the inner workings of the federal government.
Sher-mans reporting was the subject of a 2014 documentary by Netflix called “The War of the States.”
Sherm-man and Sherman have two sons, James and Mark.
Shermon had been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 2004, when he began covering the World Trade Center bombing and the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan.
Shermont’s work focused on the domestic and foreign politics of the war, according a biography on his website.
In the book, Sherman wrote about the “greatest threat to democracy in the modern era” and the “crisis of our times.”
He wrote about how the “unprecedented” and “dangerous” threat of climate change was causing “trouble in the U;” the “polar vortex” was creating “an unprecedented and dangerous” threat, and he wrote about “an unparalleled and dangerous crisis of our time” in which “many of our institutions are in crisis.”
