Looking for Freddy Jacot-Descombes

I am looking for contact information for Freddy Jacot-Descombes Sensei. He and his wife were a Swiss couple who began training in 1960 at the Aikikai Hombu dojo. An old address for him was Freddy Jacot-Descombes, Zurich Aikikai,Hardturmstr. 76, Zurich CH-8004Switzerland. Is there anyone in Switzerland who knows of him and how I can contact him or his wife? I am told that if alive, he would be in his 80's.
I appreciate any help I can get on this.
Best wishes,
Jorge Garcia

Re: Looking for Freddy Jacot-Descombes

Sorry, but from the Zurich Aikikai website:
<http://www.aikikai-zuerich.ch> look under "Unser Dojo" then under "Geschichte"

On 16 December 2007 Freddy Jacot died with 79 years after serious illness.
