> of legends passing ... great people

Indeed! I briefly had a book by him, in which he gave accounts
of his successes and even an infrequent failure; would that I kept
it (but sent it on to an Austrian friend).
And by the sounds of it, this century of life passed as grandly, peacefully
as it had been robust & rich in experiences, adventure -- to wit:

... in the Grigna hills above Lake Como.
I can't imagine a more beautiful spot to spend ones final days,
and he was surrounded by kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids.

This poster (Jim Herrington) promises photos from just a few weeks
ago with Cassin.
