AES E-news: July 19, 2005 - Donald Plunkett

It is with great sadness that I have to report the sudden passing of Donald Plunkett on Friday, July 15, 2005. Don was one of the Charter Members of the Audio Engineering Society and it's Executive Director for twenty years. He had also held several other positions within the society, including President. He was known to many members and others, and will be sorely missed. An obituary will appear in the AES Journal soon.

There will be a visiting on Tuesday, July 19th, between 7 - 9 PM, at the John J. Fox Funeral Home, 2080 Boston Post Road, Larchmont, NY. There will be a Mass on Wednesday, July 20th, at 11 AM, at St. Augustine Church, corner of Cherry & Larchmont Avenues, Larchmont, NY. It has been requested that in lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of your choice is appreciated.

Chris, Don's son, as many of you know, works in the Headquarters office and our sympathies go to him, Don's wife Liz, and the rest of his family.

Roger Furness
