It is with deep regret that I advise of (K2VBS) Paul Ducroiset's passing. On October 5th Paul had open heart surgery at Mt. Sinai hospital in NY City. The 5 hour operation was successful, but problems developed during recovery and Paul went into a coma. He passed yesterday with all family members at his hospital bedside. Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced.

Paul and I started working at WCBS Newsradio 880 as techs on the same day in 1967. We have been the best of friends for 44 years and my wife and I are God Parents to his daughter Rita. He was a regular member of our 2 meter CBS Retirees Net and served as Net Control when I traveled on vacation.I ask our CBS brothers to contact those who worked with and remember Paul from WCBS since I do not have e-mail addresses for everyone (Dwight Taylor and Willie Thrash in particular).
I notified K2ULR, W2IPX and W2LTU. Retirees web
Thanks.

Sadly,
