Chris Fortunko 1949-1998

I have some bad news.
Chris, passed away this weekend.

Colleagues: I regret to inform you that Chris Fortunko died of a heart
attack on Saturday, June 27. Chris became sick on Monday June 15 while
attending a scientific workshop in Monterey. On Friday June 19, his illness
was diagnosed as a heart attack and he was given angioplasty on an
emergency basis. He recovered enough to be released on Monday and returned
to his home for recuperation. He appeared to be doing well and had many
conversations with friends and coworkers. Early Saturday morning he
suffered another heart attack and died while receiving emergency treatment.

We have received word on the memorial arrangement for Chris.
The service will be held, Wednesday, July 1, 12-1:30 private viewing, 2:00
graveside service at the Pacific View Memorial Park, 3500 Pacific View Dr.,
Corona del Mar, California, 92625. Telephone 949-644-2700.
