If you knew Joe Resnick, you liked him.

He passed away today. The Associated Press has more on who he was.

Joe Resnick, a correspondent who covered Los Angeles sports for The Associated Press for more than three decades, died Sunday after a six-month struggle with cancer. He was 62.

Resnick died at home under hospice care, according to close friend Ed Munson.

A 1976 graduate of Emerson College, Resnick was a constant presence at all professional and college sports in the Los Angeles area. His first love was baseball and there weren’t many Dodgers or Angels games played without him being in the press box. He lived in Downey because it was approximately halfway between the Dodgers and Angels stadiums.

He freelanced for many of the nation’s largest newspapers and also worked at Hollywood Park and for Fox Sports, and was a press volunteer at the Los Angeles Olympics.
