I have sad news to you. Johannes Lepiksaar has passed away on the night
between 6th and 7th april at the age of 97. For many of us he has been
teacher, inspirator and very god friend. He shared his great knowledge and
cared for our development as archaeozoologists. He was the spirit behind
the working groups for fish and birds within ICAZ. During his years at the
Museum of Natural History in Gothenburg, Sweden, many colleauges, from
professors to students, visited him to learn and they were met by the warm
generousity of Johannes and his wife Nina. After his retirement their home
was open for visitors.
There will be an obituary in coming newsletter from ICAZ and on the home
page of the Natural history museum in Gothenburg.
