We know what happened. Jim died from pancreatic cancer and it's time to
acknowledge the sad fact that he won't be coming back. Let's just accept
it and move on.





One of sad news early year.

Condolences to Jim's family.

Welcome back.

Nothing from Jim since July. His wife seems to have moved to Queen
Creek AZ and his website has gone away, but there hasn't been any
word about his status. Probably not good. :(

Very surprising that there was no obit. He deserved one. In fact he
deserved a full page ad informing people that he was the designer of
parts of many things they've owned.

I thought it was virtually impossible to avoid an obit. There is
usually a "paper of record" for such things. Financial types use them
to monitor debts.


Here (NY) there is no requirement for an obit. It's just a courtesy,
paid for by the family. Mostly to let people know where/ when any
funeral service will be.

Yeah but Jim merited at least a short article in a local paper. Or EE
Times.

Same in Poland. Frankly, I have never thought there can be any other way
around.

Best regards, Piotr

Many states in the US do not have a legal requirement to have an obituary printed in a local newspaper. However, state law will require that a death certificate be filed with the state's office of vital statistics.
A deceased person's executor or a court-appointed administrator in the case of intestacy (i.e., someone dying without a will) will also need copies of the death certificate to transfer and retitle assets.

The attending physician or a health care facility (e.g., hospital, nursing home, hospice) usually takes care of requesting or preparing this document. Local laws govern notification in newspapers. Public notice of death is often used in probate to provide known creditors notice of the probate case by mail. Hence, out of compliance with state laws, almost all newspapers will print a death notice (not the same as an obit) - usually just the persons name, town of residence, and date. Some states stipulate the number of days it is to be printed. In my state of PA, it is 3 days, IIRC.

The notification process includes publishing a notice in a local newspaper. The latter is intended to reach unknown creditors to give them an opportunity to make a claim against the estate.
BLUF: Obits are at the discretion of the family, notices required by state law are mandatory.
