We note with sadness the passing of Ray Walter (R. W.) Rasband, on April 2, 2013, after a long battle with kidney disease. He was 54. R. W. was a frequent commenter and reviewer on AML-list back to at least 1996, soon after the list started. He served as the AML-list moderator around 2005-2008. His AML-list reviews can be viewed here, and his 424 Amazon reviews here.
Here is his obituary from the Wasatch Wave.
The picture is from when he served in the Canada Winnipeg Mission. Here is a more recent photo:
We here at the Association for Mormon Letters wish to express our deepest regret to the Rasband family, and pray for their comfort.
