With great sadness I have to inform you that on the 8th of December Maurice Pierre, Honorary President of the FISM has passed away.
Maurice was the President of the FISM from 1970-1973 and the organizer of the wonderful FISM convention in 1973 in Paris. In 1979 during the FISM General Assembly of the FISM in Bruxelles Maurice was appointed Secretary General of the FISM as the successor of Henk Vermeyden.He remained in that job till the year 2000. During his time as Secretary General he took great care that FISM stayed the worldwide recognized magic organization, which was not an easy job. We are greatful for his dedication in fulfilling his job.
Maurice is survived by his wife Denise, who supported and very actively helped him as FISM’s Secretary General. Unfortunately Denise suffers from a terrible memory disease.
FISM has all the reasons to say: “Thank you Maurice for what you have done for FISM. Rest in peace”
International President of the FISM.
