Dear friends and colleagues,
I am sorry to inform you that Gabriel Gössel passed away on Thursday April 2nd morning from long-term health complications, at the age of seventy-six.
A beloved friend, colleague and mentor to many of us, it deeply saddens me to make this announcement. I have been asked on behalf of Gabriel’s wife Eva, to let you know that he died peacefully in her arms at their home in Prague.
Gabriel’s passion and knowledge as a collector was immeasurable and his work made sound preservation a key issue in the Czech Republic. We have lost an exceptional person and it will be difficult to come to terms with his absence in our lives.
