This was posted on Coronado's web site this morning:

David Lunt, who along, with his wife Gerry Hogan, founded Coronado,
has passed away. He left us Sunday night surrounded by family. For
two years he has been living with prostate cancer and receiving
treatment. At around 7:30 in the evening his struggle ended
peacefully. We can't help but feel the large flare over the weekend
was a fitting tribute to his work.

In place of flowers the family has requested that donations in
David's name be made to an in home hospice care service in you area
or your local Humane Society.

Condolences to Ms. Hogan and the entire Coronado crew.

David's vision opened new astronomical realms for many.

I no longer see distant stars as mere pinpoints of light, but fiery nuclear infernos with the ever-changing activity I've seen from our sun.

Thank you David, for opening a part of the cosmos to share with us.

With sincere condolences,

Paul Hyndman
