It is with great sadness that we communicate the death of Jeff Wood, who passed away on 22 April following complications due to motor neuron disease. Jeff was a former SSA Canberra Branch president, long term member, and regular and enthusiastic meeting attendee. He also made major contributions to the International Biometric Society, as treasurer for 8 years and various committee roles. His contributions to the wider statistical community in Canberra and nationally were substantial to say the least, and he will be sorely missed. He remained active right up until weeks before his death, assisting many post-graduate students with statistical analyses as a Visiting Fellow at the ANU Fenner School of Environment and Society.
Apart from his research contributions, Jeff will be remembered as one of life’s true gentlemen who graced us with his kindness and humour. A longer obituary will appear later.
