Aaron Dutton passed away at the age of 74

Just heard that Baltimore magician Aaron Dutton (9/28/1939-8/25/2014) died this morning after suffering a stroke a few days ago. I first met Aaron many years ago when Ascanio attended several conventions and asked Aaron to translate for him. Aaron was also a long time attendee of the FFFF Convention.

Sad to report the passing of Ron Wohl on July 7, 2014 at 10:45am. Dr. Ronald A.
