Sending my sympathy at the passing of this good man, my cousin, Bob DuPlessis. My Dad (Bob's uncle) enjoyed athletic games and spending time with his nephew. I note there was a 20 year age difference between the men. May eternal rest grant unto him oh Lord and perpetual light shine upon him. With prayers from North Texas.....Monica

I had Mr. DuPlessis for Accounting 101,102 back in the 60s. It was required that liberal arts majors take a business course--I wanted nothing to do with accounting but grew to actually like the course. Of course I appreciated my superficial knowledge of accounting later in life--superficial by my efforts despites Mr. DuPlessis' best efforts. What a great teacher. Liked him a lot and came to realize that he played a vital part in my enjoyment of Fisher.
