Today I continue to translate The Washington Post’s French language descriptions of those were brutally murdered by terrorists on Friday night in Paris. To read the first installment, click here.
Mayeul Gaubert, 30: “Gaubert was a 30 year old lawyer, AFP reported. From the outlet: ‘Originally from Saône-et-Loire, he’d been working for five years for the startup company Cegos, where he was described as ‘funny, considerate, efficient, very professional.’ He died following wounds received at the Bataclan theater. On his Facebook page, he had posted ‘I am Charlie [Hebdo].’”
Olivier Hauducoeur, 44: “A Facebook post by ENSICAEN wrote of Hauducoeur: ‘An amateur runner, he had been working for a year for the Arval French classic car club, a subsidiary of BNP Paribas’ banking group.’”
Raphaël Ruiz, 37: “Ubiqus, where Ruiz had worked for over 10 years, confirmed his death Monday, writing in a statement: ‘The Ubiqus community is in mourning. He was 37 years old and was appreciated by everyone for his professionalism, devotion and immense gentleness.”
Vincent Detoc: “Vincent Jeanbrun, mayor of L’Haÿ-les-Roses, where Detoc grew up, write: ‘All our condolences and all our wishes for courage go out to the family and loved ones of Vincent Detoc, child of L’Haÿ-les-Roses, unjustly struck down by the bullets of barbarians.’”
I encourage you to read the stories of all of those lost in the Paris terrorist attacks here.
