Dear CAES Members,

It is with deep sadness that I notify you of the sudden passing of CAES Board member and friend, Joe (Joseph) Crisafulli. He suffered an unknown medical condition and died on a hiking trail near his home outside of Syracuse where his body was found in the afternoon on Tuesday, May 26th. He has dedicated innumerable years of his life in the advocacy of Latin and the Classics and he will be missed greatly. His dedication and willingness to do whatever he could to help others will be felt in every aspect of the CAES Institute in October as he has played a vital role in the planning and organizing of this upcoming Institute in Syracuse. I am sure there are many of you who have fond and cherished memories or pictures of Joe and you may want to share them with his family. The family has given their permission to share Joe and Josie's (his wife) address with you for this purpose: 8332 Zenith Drive, Baldwinsville, NY 13027.

Below is a link to his official obituary with visitation and funeral service information if you would like to leave the family a message, send flowers, or make a donation to the charity of the family's choosing of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. CAES is sending flowers and ATLAS is sending flowers and making a donation in his name.

Vice President, CAES
