I have just been informed that Donovan Waite (7th dan, Aikido Institute of Philadelphia) has passed away, The United States Aikido Federation has posted onto Facebook, "We were notified of this tragic news today and at this time, we have no other information to share. Our hearts go out to his family, students, and friends throughout the world. There are no words to express the depth of this loss to the aikido community. We will always hold him in our hearts and in our practice."

Waite started aikido in 1969 and received his shodan at age 14 and served as uchideshi to Yoshimitsu Yamada at the New York Aikikai for over 10 years.

My condolences go out to his friends, family, students, and loved ones.
