Longtime AP photographer Fred Waters dies


Waters was transferred to St. Louis in 1962 and worked there until he retired in 1987. His photos chronicled construction of the Gateway Arch, presidential visits, World Series and Stanley Cup Finals games. He traveled with Martin Luther King Jr. and covered the upheaval after his assassination.

Waters was inducted into the Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame in 2008.

Funeral services are 2 p.m. Sunday at Bayview Memorial Park Funeral Home in Pensacola, Fla. Waters is survived by his wife of 54 years, Mary Waters, daughters Karen Wiley and Jane Taylor, both of Gulf Breeze, and son Oscar Waters of St. Louis; nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
