Retired Williamston Publisher Dies

Dallas Coltrain, the longtime publisher of The Enterprise of Williamston, has died after collapsing at the Greenville Mall. He was 74.

Julia Biggs of Biggs Funeral Home said Coltrain died Friday after a blood clot formed near his brain.

He worked at The Enterprise for 54 years, including 24 years as publisher. He retired in 2008. He sold advertising and managed finances and production for Tuesday-Thursday publication and The Weekly Herald of Robersonville.

Williamston residents remembered him as a rock-solid businessman and friend.
