Science Computing is very sad to announce the passing of Allan Fleming who died quietly in his sleep just five months after his retirement in February, 2019. Allan’s quiet, humble friendliness and love of laughter belied his status as a huge asset to the Faculty computing support and server management team. He worked his magic on many machines, always focused on the positive and served as a great contributor to the morale of his unit as well as his clients’ service experience. We will miss him greatly.
