Default Moment of Silence for John Todd

Let us all take a moment of silence for John Todd who passed away
just recently.

He was a true *gentleman* as well as a fine mathematician.

I am pleased that I had the opportunity to meet him.

Thumbs up John Todd



I am in full agreement with your obituary. I have not had the pleasure to have met him personally myself nor have had an exchange with him. But if you say he was a gentleman and a fine mathematician, these are hard to find in this dog eat dog world.
I would hasten to add that that is not the end of him. He has ascended to the Music of the Spheres and an eternal life to inherit. Plus he will live on in our memories till time itself ebbs out.

With due respect to him- may his soul rest in peace.

Mally
