The last farewell

We are deeply saddened by the passing of the following Honorary Life Members:

Kurt Langenegger, Toni Erb, Margrit Schneider, Rina Wanner and former President of the Swiss Club (1961- 63) Oscar Nicolet who passed away in Switzerland. Franz Döös passed away on 15 February. Franz was a longstanding member of the Swiss Club, joining in 1956, and serving as its President in 1969. He was well regarded among members and the Swiss community at large. We will miss seeing Franz at the club and remember him fondly. We shall miss them and remember them all. Our sincere sympathies go to their families.
