  GrahamClayton: The November 2009 issue of the "Australian Correspondence Chess Quarterly" has reported the sad news of the passing of GM Arlauskas at the age of 92. Arlauskas had been diagnosed with cancer in 1999, and had been receiving treatment for the last 10 years. He passed away at home on the 22nd of September 2009, with his partner Jurate by his side. He can be ranked alongside Cecil Purdy and Lucius Endzelins as arguably the 3 greatest ever Australian correspondence players.
