Essence Super Gem Speakers

I bought these wonderful speakers in 1992, used them for 12 years, and then kept them well cared for in storage until a couple weeks ago. And, unfortunately they were overloaded a few days ago whereby the tweeter in one and both the tweeter and woofer in the other were blown out.  I'm heartsick as these were of such pure sound that listening to them was mesmerizing.
Does anyone know if Dale Pitcher is still around as he designed / engineered these?  And, if yes does anyone have a contact number for him?  
Or does anyone have a pair for sale in very good condition?
And lastly, what would be a comparable speaker today?
