Sadly after a long battle with illness, my Grandfather passed away last Tuesday (28th) at the very respectable age of 80. He lived a remarkable life – served as a pilot during the latter stages of the Second World War, worked on the first commercial computer systems as a businessman at ICL (now called something else), and in his free time was a well-renowned photographer and of course, was a father to three children and later on a grandfather to three more!
Up until recently he lived a very active life and was amazingly computer literate for someone of his generation. How many 80-year-olds do you know who can use photoshop, send emails, surf the web and shop online (let alone know what a blog is)?!
He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
