Hi Jeff,

I just heard through regimental sources that Mass passed away following surgery on June 17th. No other details including family contact info at this time. I will pass along whatever I hear.

Last time I talked with Mass he updated me on his declining health - it was quite serious.
As far as family goes, his mother passed recently (a few months ago).
He was living with his aging father in order to take care of him.
I don't know of any other siblings.

Sad news.
Is this thing on?
