Despite reading the email chain, I was at the M&M opening reception tonight and I kept expecting to run into Ken. This is a very sad day for our field, indeed.

Dear all,

It is with great sadness and disbelief that we write to let you know that Ken Downing passed away last night, peacefully, at his house, surrounded by his loving family.

Ken made numerous contributions to our field and was respected and loved by everyone that knew him. His unique sense of humor, his kindness and his insights will be deeply missed.
