Bernard Nefkens

Dear colleagues,

It is with sadness that I report to you that our long time colleague, Professor Emeritus Bernard “Ben” Nefkens, has died yesterday after a lengthy battle with illness. Please join me in sending condolences to his wife, Helen, and the rest of the Nefkens family.

Anyone who knew Ben will remember an energetic, enthusiastic, open and friendly colleague, who will be greatly missed. We will send information on memorial services and other occasions for remembrance as they become available, so that we may collectively salute Ben a last time.

A more complete obituary is now online here.
