Rais Farouq has died

I found this on EEF, so sad

وفاة مكتشف "خبيئة معبد الأقصر"

It is with great sadness that we report rais Farouq Sharet passed away on July 3rd in Luxor. Rais Farouq as he was known to many, was a popular, colourful gufti who managed many excavations in Egypt, chiefly for foreign missions. Many of his younger relatives who trained with him, went on to work and supervise excavations as well. His humor and forceful personality, as well as his elegant appearance, will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
