In memory of: dctorres, AF forum moderator
dctorres was a long time moderator of the AF Fréquence Plus forum. He passed away last night in Paris due to complications from the H1N1 flu virus. He is survived by his wife and three young children in Paris, his mother and brother in the States, and many friends everywhere.

dctorres was a very funny, kind and intelligent man. He liked travel, good food and wine, music, miles and upgrades. His children were savvy flyers fromt the start and were already asking why they weren't "sitting up front" when they found themselves in Y (not to worry, they were well-behaved). He was a good friend, a great father, husband, son and brother ... he also happened to be a very good moderator here at FT. He will be missed.

So, the next time you find yourself in an AF lounge or a premium AF cabin, tip your glass of champagne in memory of dctorres.

I was so sad to learn that Derek had passed away. I will always remember him as a good-spirited, knowledgeable and loyal friend, as well as a gracious host to our community. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Oh my god, these are really sad news.

I was a newbie lurker here when he was Moderator of the AF board but I still remember his role in the warm atmosphere of the board.

All my thoughts are with his family and friends.
