    Default Alpha Five Developer Deaths

    I'm posting this somewhat hesitantly. My hesitation arises only because I don't have first hand knowledge of the following, but I was told by reliable members of this board. I just thought that there are people here who know these guys and may not have heard the news.

    Jim Dusoe died 4 or 5 months ago from cancer, I was told.

    Michael Cornford died of a heart attack recently while attending his son's wedding.

    Again, I don't have first hand knowledge of this, but I have been assured this is true.

    Ben Sacherich, an Alpha Five developer, reports that he heard from Michael Cornford's son, Simon Cornford:

    "He passed away on the 12th April of a heart attack in South Africa where we had been to celebrate the marriage of Jim (his youngest son), we had a service for him on Wednesday (2nd May)."

    Ben was recently working with Both Michael and Simon on a project.

    Long time Alpha Five desktop developer, John Lemisch, died October 5th due to illness. An equally long time client of his informed me of this.

    Sadly I can confirm that Jim Dusoe did in fact pass away last Christmas.

    Jim was a real gentleman who was also extremely kind and super smart.
    He was very family oriented, active in helping troubled teens in his community and loved dogs.

    I miss talking to him and interacting with him and hope that he is at peace.
