It is with an incredibly sad heart, that we share the news of John Futers’ passing. He was an integral part of the Department of Computer Science both as a TA, Course Coordinator and Instructor, since 2005. John was one of the most diligent individuals we had the honour of knowing. He cared about the students, went above and beyond within his role of Course Coordinator (where the department depended on him greatly) and would drive from his home specifically to meet up with students as needed. He had a great sense of humour and we could tell by his conversations, loved his family. John truly was one who lived his life to the fullest and he will be missed by many here in Computer Science.
The Livestream Service will happen tomorrow (Wednesday) at 10:55 am.
