This news came via the EEF from Robert Reynolds:

"David Lorton of Baltimore, Maryland died on October 22, 2011. He has expressed the wish that there be no public ceremony and no messages or cards expressing condolences."

David's work will have been known to many as he translated many Egyptology books from French and German into English. Although most of you will probably not have known him personally, you are very likely to have some of his work in your library.
