[802SEC] FW: Chan Rypinski, 1924-2011
I think many of you may have known Chan. I sure enjoyed the many years I
had a chance to work with him in 802.15. He will be missed.

Dear Mr. Allen-
It is with great regret that I must report that my father, Chan Rypinski,
died of cancer on July 27. He was 86.
Chan was an engineer, and entrepreneur, and an inventor. He held eleven
patents, and started at least five companies. He was also a husband and
father. He is survived by his wife of 61 years (my mom) Catherine Birch
Rypinski, his brother, Richard Rypinski, two children (my sister Margaret
Buss and myself), and three grandchildren.
I have been looking through his email to identify his friends and
correspondents. If you know anyone who should be notified, I would be
greatful if you could pass the word.
