Rest in piece our friend Roberto Restucha

Dear Tango Community,

It is with deep sadness I bring you the news that our dear friend, Roberto Restucha, passed away this morning after battling a lung disease that was diagnosed back in March. Roberto and his wife Amalia were influential in nurturing our community since its beginnings. He was a joy to have around, always with a warm smile and ready to share his knowledge of the music and the dance he loved. He will be greatly missed.

Please keep Amalia and her family in your thoughts and prayers. We will keep you posted as more information is available.
