To those of you who knew him-a large contributor to the cactus files here, just wanted to let you know Jürgen Menzel lost his (short) battle with Leukemia. Please tell those you know who knew him. Thanks.

Very sad I never got to meet him in person. A wonderful, generous, extremely knowledgeable cactophile.

Yes, I’ve lost my friend of 20 yrs. The many online forums will be sad about the loss of this amazing man. I know he worked at educating others about cactus & tried to fill the files with examples, using his plants.
