As Mike's announcement, A very sad accident has happend.
We can not explain this emotion of sorrow. Our friend Christpher Witmer was good understanding person of feasrex and full-range speakers. It is not known very much, but Chris gave the name of "feastrex".
Also he named "Nature Flux". We think that Christpher Witmer was just like one of member of feastrex.
We wish to express our gratitude to him. We will miss you Chris....
God bless Chris and his wife and seven beautiful daughters.

That's a real tragedy. My deepest condolences to his wife, his daughters, and all his family. Another one who's gone too young.

A number of people have contacted me to ask how they could make a donation to help Chris’s family. I apologize for not getting back to everyone yet--it’s been difficult for me to accept the reality that he is gone so suddenly, and I’m still trying to recover from the shock. Chris and I had been in almost daily contact by email for the past few years, and I’ve never lost a friend this close before. We had been friends for 28 years.

I’ll look into setting up some kind of fund for Chris’s family for those of you who would like to help. I have no idea how to do this, so I was just going to contact a local bank or two to see if this is something they do, but if anyone here has had experience with this kind of thing, I’d appreciate any advice you might have for me. You can send me a PM here at DIY Audio, or an email to me at: mluckow –at- comcast –dot- net.

Thank you,

Mike Luckow

With regard to setting up a memorial account where people can make donations to help Chris's family, I contacted many banks today, both local and national, and ran into dead ends everywhere I checked.

However, Mr. Teramoto informed me that it would be possible for people to make contributions directly to Chris's wife, Hiroko Witmer. The procedure is to go to your local post office and purchase an international postal money order, and then mail it to Hiroko Witmer directly. She can then take it to her local post office in Japan to exchange it for cash.

These international postal money orders are sold at any major post office in the US, and apparently by major post offices in other countries as well. However, they are not very common, and many postal workers are not aware of their existence, so you may have to insist that they do actually exist and ask them to ask their supervisor about them. (This happened to me at my local post office in Boulder.) There is a small flat fee to buy them, and you can get them for any amount of money.

You can mail it to Hiroko Witmer. Please contact me for her address.

Thank you very much to everyone who can help her and Chris's seven daughters.

Mike

Greetings.

Someone pointed me to this forum for details about Chris's death, and I have followed the conversation here for a few days. I have just tonight learned that an American church that is in the same denomination as Chris's congregation in Japan has set up a fund to benefit his family. Those in the States who wish to help may find it easier to send a contribution to this address:

Grace Covenant Church
878 FM 226
Nacogdoches, Texas 75961

Mark contributions "Witmer Fund."

(I know I'm a complete stranger to you all, so I hope this link will be a sufficient source for the info: BLOG and MABLOG)

I never had the opportunity to meet Chris, but what a joy it was to know him even through the Internet. Over and over in the past few days I've seen folks remark on how surprising it is to feel such loss over a man we've never even seen. He just had that sort of impact on people, even from the other side of the world, and he will be dearly missed.
