was a young man, but at 43 he had achieved
more than many. His life has been cut so tragically
short. His death is an immense loss to the
University, his friends and colleagues throughout
the world and his family. We extend our heartfelt
condolences to his wife Dora Lozsadi.
The funeral on January 28 will be a small,
quiet service for close friends and family
only. A memorial service to allow others to
pay their respects will be held at the University
at a later date. Details of the time and venue,
and a full obituary, will be posted on campusweb.
