My friend Andy Stables died this morning of prostate cancer. Over many years, I knew him as a research student, a colleague, a research collaborator, a clear-minded author, and as my Head of Department at Bath. Of late, both kind of retired, we would walk, talk and go to pubs with the conversation always free-flowing. We were planning to produce some podcasts, but his time caught up with us.
I'll write more about his scholarly contribution and achievements at a later date.
