Laucournet's greatest loss

Robert Laucournet passed away after 87 years of a life filled militant. He was born on 22 July 1921 rue Porte-Panet in Limoges. After studying law and political science, it is committed to the Liberation, as official representative of the Commissioner of the Republic in Limoges, before joining the Directorate of National Security in Paris. In 1947, he joined the SFIO. He became mayor of Isle in 1953. He remained until 1995 (and wrote the story). In 1968 he was elected senator. Reelected in 1977 and 1986, will be vice-chairman of the Senate. A position he occupies to the Committee on Economic Affairs. In 1980 he was appointed treasurer of the North Atlantic Assembly which he left in 1995. Founding President of the Association of Friends of Robert Margerie, he works through the creation of a regional federation of Friends of sponsors. Warm and grown, we have a sporadic correspondence, especially by email, and I was writing to the issuance of my ABC's literature Limousin to tell me the good he thought. I am grateful.
