John’s passing is so sad for so many of us.
I was in awe of his knowledge, willingness to engage, ability to ‘translate’ the most complex into the understandable and his wonderful humour.
John and Charlene were due to visit with me, in Sydney (Australia), during September – I was so excited, so may plans; alas, not to be.
Tae-Hee and I started a project with John in late 2019 in honour of Fred Lee – that project will now honour the amazing contributions of both John and Fred. One of my fondest memories of this project with John was when he would ring Tae-Hee for a ‘reminder’ about how to connect for our Zoom discussions and then – given our time zone difference – I would be drinking my breakfast coffee and he would be having a whisky!
