In researching some material on the Interkosmos program, I visited Joachim Becker's marvelous Spacefacts website and saw to my surprise a small notation that Romanian backup cosmonaut Dumitru Dediu had passed away last year.

I could find no other online reference to this and asked Joachim, who said that it came to him second-hand from an obscure Russian website.

Seeking confirmation I contacted Dediu's long-time friend and fellow Interkosmos candidate Dumitru Prunariu and he confirmed that Dediu had indeed passed away last year after a lengthy illness. He did not know the exact date, but said the burial took place on 11 July 2013.

Dediu obituary published in the October 2013 issue of the Russian space news magazine Novosty Cosmonavtiki and on Russian well known space history site ASTROnote.
