Gary Thomas Rowe Jr., 64, an FBI informer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan during the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, died of a heart attack four months ago in Savannah, Ga.

He was buried under the name of Thomas Neal Moore, the identity that federal authorities helped him to assume in 1965 after he testified against Klansmen who were accused of killing Viola Gregg Liuzzo, a civil rights volunteer.

Mr. Rowe's death became known last week when a television crew shooting footage for a program about the FBI and the Ku Klux Klan searched for him in Savannah, only to learn that he had died May 25. Eugene Brooks, who had been Mr. Rowe's lawyer, confirmed the death.

Karlheinz Kaske, 70, former Siemens chief who oversaw the electronics company's vigorous expansion into a worldwide concern during the 1980s, died Sept. 27, the company said in Munich, Germany. No cause of death was given.

Nikolai Solovyov, 66, a senior Russian diplomat who was ambassador to Japan, China and Indonesia, died Tuesday in Moscow, the Foreign Ministry said. No cause of death was given.

Jean-Pascal Delamuraz, 62, former Swiss president who made headlines by describing Jewish demands for quick compensation to Holocaust survivors as "blackmail," has died, the government said yesterday in Zurich, Switzerland. It did not give a cause of death, but his poor health forced him to step down as economics minister in March.
