Dear ARA members and friends,
It saddens me to announce the death of our beloved ARA Honorary Member, Dr. Ion Cepoi. He was an exceptional person and I feel blessed that I had the chance to meet him in person during the 38th ARA Congress in Pasadena.
Dumnezeu să-l odihnească!
“It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death, on the night of March 24th 2016, in Las Vegas, at the age of 92, of Jon Cepoi, ARA honorary member and ARA supporter, President of „Viitorul Roman” Society in Los Angeles for more than 20 years, the first President and cofounder with his wife of „Doina” Society in Las Vegas, member of numerous Romanian and American societies, a talented engineer, an investor and writer, a good friend of many great Romanians and a great Romanian himself.
