I recall Chandra Gurung from the 1970s days on the PN campus, Pokhara. After classes, he and several other students would gather in the house of Mick and Jon for conversation, song and laughter. Chandra was the most outgoing and engaging of the students (and the only one I recall by name 33 years later). When I learned of his successful career with the WWF and accomplishments, I hoped that I would one day be able to work with him in educational endeavors in Nepal. My heartfelt condolences go to his family.
