  cu8sfan: Switzerland's Ivan Nemet died two days ago. Rest in Peace, Ivan.
Dec-19-07  Eastfrisian: He died after a second heart attack in Basle. He was born in Sombor (now Serbia).
Mar-26-08  brankat: I knew Ivan Nemet way back in the late 1960's and early '70. A very fine person. Polite, patient, always willing to help. Witty, with a good sense of humour.

And, of course, a very talented chess player.

It was only yesterday I found he passed away last December. R.I.P. Ivan.
