John Refoua, Avatar 1 and 2 editor passed away on May 14th, his wife Serena Refoua posted a touching post on Facebook about the situation-

Dear friends, my brilliant, sweet, creative husband John Djahanshah Refoua passed away last night May 14 surrounded by family and friends who loved him. He was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a rare bile duct cancer, 15 months ago. Despite the pain and complexities of this aggressive disease, he faced it with courage and grit. He continued to work and edit on James Cameron’s Avatar 3 right up to his final weeks. His life’s trajectory was quite unique and anything he touched, he made better. He loved music, movies, politics, traveling, vintage cars, science fiction, and his 4 year old granddaughter Avery Sophia. We will miss his generosity and wisdom.

His family is in my prayers, what a loss for them, and for the Avatar family. His wife also posted a link to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation where your donation is used to help find a cure and help those patients who currently fighting the battle with it.
