It is with great sadness that I report the death of John Vlissides who passed away last Thursday, having been diagnosed with brain cancer in early 2004. John was one of the Gang of Four and a brilliant researcher, but above all a kind and gentle man. He will be missed.
John is survived by his wife and children. Dru Ann wants to create a scrapbook for their children in celebration of John's life, so if you knew John and have an anecdote to share, please visit this Wiki.
