In the upcoming Schwalbe, April 2018, three deaths have been mentioned.

Gerard Bouma (10.v.1923 - 27.xi.2017) should be well-known to most MatPlus forum visitors.
Wouter Mees (6.viii.1921 - 25.i.2018) just had recently sent "study greetings" to EG readers. Now a few months later he died.
Newman Guttman (4.iv.1927 - 2.ii.2018) was on the legendary Piran congress. He was U.S. delegate for many years at the PCCC meetings.

EDIT: Also news came in that Mikhail Mishko from Ukraine has died in his 60th year.
