A very sad day for me. A favourite great uncle of mine, Bill Scammell (obituary), died on September 5th in Adelaide, Australia. He was a great guy, a fine businessman and educator (former Chancellor of Adelaide University), and loved car racing. I have fond memories of driving around Adelaide in his Porsche, and managing to accidentally lock him out of the car radio. He'll be very much missed, and I'm sad that he passed on a mere two weeks before I was going to be in Adelaide to visit him and other relatives.

Many condolences to Pat Scammell, his wife, and my Dad, who was close to him also (though they don't read Advogato).

Rest in peace, Bill.
