I don't know where to put this, so I decided to start in the Cafe, away from the main skating section.
I read on another site and have confirmed it that longtime American coach Peter Burrows passed away last week. He was in his seventies. He leaves behind a widow, his second wife Katherine Healy, whom many skate fans know as an unusual skater with ballet training (and a career as a ballerina). She posted on her Facebook page about Burrows' passing.
Burrows coached many elite skaters, including Dorothy Hamill, Elaine Zayak,and Jason Dunjen and his various pairs partners (including I believe Yuka Sato when she skated pro with Dunjen as a pair, but I can't confirm that).
Katherine Healy was a good deal younger than Burrows (he had lost his first wife to an illness), and they seem to have had a fruitful partnership both on and off the ice. On the other skating site and on her Facebook page, she has expressed gratitude to those who have sent condolences.
As a longtime fan of many of Burrows' students and also of Healy, I felt it was important to post this information.
Mods, please move or delete this post if I've put it in the wrong place or if I shouldn't have posted it. I did verify, so I think it counts as factual. There is an obituary in Newsday, a New York area paper.
