Norbert Hellmann, a long-time employee at UTS, passed away on Friday, January 4. Mr. Hellman taught ESL to hundreds of students for more than 10 years. Although he was not a Unificationist himself, he was a congenial and exceptionally dedicated teacher.
Most recently, Norbert had been teaching ESL at SUNY New Paltz. I often saw him at ESL teacher's conferences. Apparently, the night he died, he had been exercising at the university gym, but he never made it home. Campus security found him later that evening in his car, where he had suffered a fatal heart attack. He was only 53 years old.
The following is the link to the local newspaper article describing what happened.
The extra link below announces the funeral arrangements. SUNY New Paltz is planning a memorial service at the University within a few weeks.
Anyone can feel free to contact me if they want further information.
