Subject: [Puptcrit] Leo Velleman passed away last month

Dear friends,

In an attempt to track down Leo Velleman, formerly of Canadian Puppet  
Festivals, a very important figure in Canadian puppet theatre history,  
I sadly stumbled across his obituary. Looks like I missed my chance to  
talk to a legend. His wife Dora is still with us, however, so I should  
move quickly.

Here is a link to his obituary (you need to scroll down a bit):

And an article from his religious group:
