The most fearless editor in Tulare and Kings Counties, Joseph Oldenbourg, passed away suddenly early this morning from an aneurysm. The Valley Voice team is deeply grieving the loss of a true and loyal friend, a passionate warrior, an old soul, and one of the biggest hearts we will ever know. And he could turn a phrase either leaving his readers cheering or screaming.
He was just a great guy.
Joseph will be laid to rest next to his son, Alex, at the Exeter Cemetery next week. Services will be private.
