Boris Rositsan, FIDE chess master and president of the Rositsan and Maccabi Elite Checkers and Chess Club, has passed away at the age of 75. He suffered a heart attack during a chess tournament. His fellow players rendered aid and emergency medical personnel arrived quickly and got his heart beating again, but several hours later we learned he had died at hospital.

Those wishing to bid farewell to this active and beloved member of the Lithuanian Jewish Community may do so from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. on August 18 at the Nutrūkusi styga funeral home.

Our deepest condolences to his family and many friends.
