Enthusiasts say good-bye to Ferrari expert Gerald Lee RoushTue, 25 May 2010
Influential Ferrari expert Gerald Lee Roush, the founding editor and publisher of the Ferrari Market Letter, died on May 21 after complications from a heart attack. He was 68.
Born in Durango, Colo., Roush started his publication while teaching history at Abraham Baldwin College, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He continued to edit the Ferrari Market Letter until his death.
While Roush was known for his expansive knowledge concerning Ferrari history, he sold his own Ferraris early on.
There will be a memorial service for Roush at 11 a.m. on May 29 at Chapel of Wages Funeral Home in Snellville, Ga. Instead of flowers, Roush's family has requested that donations be made to the American Heart Association in his memory.
