Thomas Mulligan, the former financial editor of the Providence News and deputy business editor of the Los Angeles Times, died Monday at the age of 73.

An obituary states, “After his start at the AP and the Middlesex News, Tom joined the Providence Journal, where he met Irene, whom he married in 1978. Their children, Emily and Andrew, were born and started school in Providence, as he moved through the newspaper’s ranks.

“In 1989, Tom joined the Los Angeles Times as deputy business editor. He later returned to reporting and was assigned to the Times’ New York bureau in 1996. His beat was Wall Street but he routinely covered national stories, such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the Enron trial in Houston. He was revered for his readiness to take on the toughest jobs, including a stint in Baghdad in 2004. He capped his career in the New York office of Sitrick and Co., a strategic communications firm.”
