The Daily Beatle today reports the recent death of Sean O'Mahony, publisher of Beatles Book Monthly, the band's official fan club magazine.
An obituary for O'Mahony was posted two weeks ago on the Daily Telegraph website:
Sean O’Mahony, died peacefully at home on 21st of July. Deeply loved and cherished husband of Jacqueline, loving father to Josephine and Suzanna and adored grandfather of six grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
Sean touched many lives during his career as a magazine publisher of over twenty titles, but is probably best remembered for 'The Beatles Book Monthly' magazine, which he edited under the pseudonym ‘Johnny Dean.'
Family funeral. There will be a memorial service at a later date. No flowers, but donations in his memory to macmillan.org.uk

The Beatles Book Monthly published 77 issues from 1963 to 1969 and is a treasure trove of original articles about and photos of the band.
