Default Dennis Marquand passing

I want to pass along this note; that Dennis Marquand passed away last week, written by his son Wesley:

"Late Wednesday night my dad passed away at home. He was a true friend, a generous mentor, a loving husband, and an incredible father. My heart hurts but I know the world is a better place for him having been in it."

"He liked to like people, therefore people liked him." -Mark Twain"

Dennis was, for those who did not know him, a purveyor of rug books. He and his son Wesley's business is:

I had met him a couple of times and visited with him at the Istanbul ICOC. Genial, knowledgeable and someone passionate about rugs and textiles and, especially, books about them.
