Mr. Dallas Dingle, President of the ABA in 1973 passed away last August at the age of 100.

It was with great sorrow that we were informed of the passing of Mr. Jim Rees of Interswiss. Mr. Rees had been a member since 1947 and had attended every Convention up to last year. His knowledge and commitment to the ABA and friendship will be missed.

On 7/11/16 we lost another valuable member by the name of Harvey Peterson. Mr. Peterson was an Engineer and Master Mason who served in the Canadian Air force. He worked for Canadian Pacific, WABCO, and Knorr Ltd. He was a wonderful mentor and friend. He is survived by numerous children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was a member of the ABA since the 1950's. Our sympathies to his family.
