Subject: Al Donchin Date: Mon, 26 Jan 1998 13:27:37 -0500 From: "Robert T. Regan" Capt230@worldnet.att.net To: email@example.com Hi Brother: Some bad news Al Donchin died on Jan 13, 1998 . E230 was informed by his friend a week after his death. There was no funeral , no wake etc. I spoke to Chief Ganci and sent his some info on Al and requested a 65-2 or sometime on the Dept. Order. Still waiting. Al had a bad auto accident in Dec and was in the hosp. recovering, when suffered a heart attach. Again E230 never got this word until after his death. Capt Ed Regan E-230
