Deric Daniel WATERS (aka Dan) [1920-2016]
I'm very sorry to hear that Dr. Dan Waters passed away early on Wednesday morning.
In 2011 I saw him in the distance, heading to an RAS talk we were both attending. Though I didn't know him well, I thought I'd say hello when I caught up with him, as I certainly knew of him from all the interesting pieces he'd written about Hong Kong's history over the years. Except he was striding ahead at such a pace that I never did catch up with him - and he was already 91 years old at the time !
Physical fitness was just one of his many qualities. You can get a better idea of his many achievements from this citation in 2014. If you see any obituary for Dan, please leave a link to it in the comments below.
