Tim Dumont passes, but felt the love

This from Rene Jalbert…

Just heard from Tim Dumont’s sister that he passed early this morning, July 10, around 12:30 a.m. There won’t be any service. Would you please do an update to the Alumni post and be sure to tell those who sent him cards and messages that he truly appreciated hearing from them and felt the love. Thanks, for everything heart emoticon

Tim was in the last stage of his battle with pancreatic cancer.

Suceeding at the New York Times

This from Michael “Marbs” Prager:
On the Times’ electronic front page right now, two former Courant staffers have bylines: Jack Ewing and Eric Lipton.

Also, a former Globie, but I have to be the only one caring about the Courant-Globe domination of the NYT front.


J. Greg Robertson helped energize the newsroom

J. Greg Robertson was before my time at The Courant, but Joe Nunes remembers him as being “among the unforgettable characters — passionate about life, many times to the extreme — who made the Courant newsroom so energizing.”

Former editor David Barrett remembers Greg as “a troubled soul.”

Here is his obituary .


Check in on Tim Dumont

Tim Dumont and Rene Jalbert

This from Rene Jalbert, former Courant graphic artist:

Tim Dumont is on the last leg of this earthly journey. He has pancreatic cancer and will not be pursuing chemo or radiation. They have given him a few months. He is in a rehab nursing facility now. I would like it if you could put a mention of it in the blog. He could use a few jokes/cards/calls. I will be visiting him tomorrow.
