Obituary: Rafael Morfin

Rafael Morfin (photo), formerly a Reuters accountant in the Americas, died of cancer in a US hospice on Wednesday - two days before his 62nd birthday.

The son of an accountant, he joined Reuters in his native Mexico City and later worked in Miami before transferring to Washington in 1999. He left Reuters in 2009 to work for The Washington Post as newsroom finance manager.


Morfin's wife of 33 years, Maria, plans to hold a service at Sandy Point State Park tomorrow. She said that since it would have been his birthday today the family plans to have a mariachi band sing his mañanitas, a traditional Mexican birthday song. ■
