Just learned of this from a double transplant survivor I know on MySpace:

Brack Hattler, UPMC transplant surgeon, died unexpectedly last weekend in a triathlon event. He was 71.

In 2007, he bicycled 1,200 miles and 24 days as part of a coast-to-coast fund raiser for the American Lung Association. (An accident in South Dakota terminated his ride.) Lots of photos and a blog of the ride available here.

His funeral is this afternoon, 4pm. Full obit here.
