Via the Mises blog comes the news of the death of Larry Sechrest at age 62 of heart failure. Larry was a friend and colleague to many of us. Larry taught at Sul Ross State in Texas. He was a long-time member of the SDAE and frequently wrote for various Austrian and libertarian outlets. His book on free banking remains a terrific contribution to that literature. Although I did not know Larry well, my interactions with him were always enjoyable and he was one of those people who always had a smile on his face. Jeff Tucker's blog post linked above has many more details on Larry's life. Our condolences to his family and friends.
