Via a forum posting, the company's Chief Technology Officer Leo Negro has reported that Commodore USA's CEO Barry Altman has succumbed to a prolonged battle with cancer at age 63. Mr. Altman died on December the 8th 2012, but the family did not notify the public until this time.

I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Altman about Commodore in August of 2012, only four months before his passing. He will be missed.
