At Probus magazine we regularly receive obituaries from members paying their respects to colleagues who have passed on, providing in most cases a fascinating insight into their lives and careers spanning decades.
Some are just too long to publish, yet shortening them would mean leaving out important facts.
So this section of the website is for such tributes.
