RE: (IAAC) Our "Astronomical Friend" Roger Tuthill, Dies



Hi Ted,
I saw Roger at the Jersey Starquest two years ago, he was like a local celebrity!  In any
case, his club, AAI, is a great club,  I see people from there every year at Starquest,
and Barry Malpas is a friend who has done talks at my local astro club.  Thanks for
spreading the new (however sad).  He will be very much missed in New Jersey.
