I'm very sad to inform you that François Riva has passed away on 14th November 2022.

He was born on 5th December 1959 and started playing correspondence chess in 1983.

For a decade (1996-2006) Frank was the National Delegate to ICCF for Luxembourg and represented his country at several ICCF Congresses. He was also Team Captain and active player until 2006 and participated in 3 European Team Championships and also in 3 Olympiad preliminaries. He was member of our team in the XIII Olympiad final in 2004, where due to illness he has to be replaced in 2006.

He organised several country matches and a national Championship and helped to promote correspondence chess in Luxembourg.

Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
