We can't do that really. Just drop the person a polite note explaining that while we respect his right to privacy, we are an encyclopedia and it's our job to provide information. It is unfortunately not possible for us to remove verifiable information based on such considerations. This is a sensitive issue and care needs to be taken. But ultimately, we really can't put the interests of the subject over those of the encyclopedia.
