Archbishop Mar Athanasius Yeshue Samuel, 87, the primate of the Syrian Orthodox Church of the United States, died April 16 of a heart attack in Lodi, N.J. His 1947 encounter with a Bethlehem cobbler bearing 2,000-year-old engraved leather pieces led to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Don Pullen, 53, an avant-garde jazz pianist who favored a percussive approach and sometimes played using his elbows and the backs of his hands, died Saturday of lymphoma in East Orange, N.J.
