Have you heard about the death of Joe Ben Wheat?

I am very sad to report that this morning, June 12th, Joe Ben Wheat passed
away.  His widow, Barbara, told me that he died peacefully (heart failure).
 There is to be no funeral; Joe's ashes will be scattered at Yellow Jacket.
 There will likely be a "meeting of remembrance" announced sometime at the
end of summer, probably arranged by the University of Colorado Museum.
Barbara Wheat may be reached at c/o Linda Cordell, University of Colorado
Museum, Boulder, CO 80309.
