A Tribute to Etienne Blyelle
By Philippe Rouillé

Dear MMDs,  We announced recently the passing of Etienne Blyelle in
the MMD.  (He was known also as Jacques Antoine E. Horngacher, a family
name he used to sign some articles a long time ago.)

A tribute will be given to him in Geneva on Thursday, February 7th,
at 3 p.m. at the following place :

  Foyer du Temple de Chêne-Bougeries
  153, route de Chêne, 1224 Chêne-Bougeries, Genève, Switzerland
  (Chêne-Bougeries is a suburb SE of Geneva, very near the main city).

Certainly many friends and relations of Etienne will attend.

Our French society AAIMM, of which he was a founding member and a
vice-president, will be represented by its President Jean-Pierre
Arnault, Jean-Marc Lebout, vice-president and editor of our Journal,
and several other members.

If you wish to send a message, you may send it to Jean-Marc Lebout
who will pass it to his family, and/or read it during the ceremony,
according to the possibilities :

  Jean-Marc Lebout <> (Please suppress
  the suffix ".geentroep" before sending him your message.)

We lost a friend and an irreplaceable expert in the technology and
history of musical boxes.

Kind regards from Paris,
Philippe Rouillé
(vice-president of the AAIMM)

 [ Respecting the request of his family, announcement of his death
 [ on January 16th, 2013, was delayed until after the cremation on
 [ January 28th.  The public announcement is now published at
