Message from Maria Ibanez - S.A.M. Regional Vice President, SA States

Just received the following message via Ted Goodman. It is indeed a great loss to Magic and those of us who were fortunate to have met him will know a terrible loss. My prayers go out to his wife Ann, family and countless friends.

Del Ray (Delbert Raymond Petrosky), one of the world's greatest close-up worker, died Tuesday, November 11, 2003 in his home town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He had been in poor health for nearly a year. He is survived by his wife, Ann, and some siblings. A private memorial service is planned for Saturday.

I feel honored to have been a guest at his table during the 1988 FFFF, where I was totally fooled by his magic. The brotherhood of magic has indeed lost one of our finest artists.
