Anybody close to me will know that at the end of 2013 my world was kinda shattered. A personal hero and mentor, Gary Marsden passed away due to a sudden heart attack. I knew Gary was an incredible person, but after his death I realized the vastness of his legacy. Hundreds of incredible scholars made contact with each other, and mourned together. A special issue of the ITID journal (of which he was the associate editor since 2011) was put together in honour of the work that he had inspired. Too add some flair, I created this infographic – detailing his accomplishments relevant to the community (however, I’m sure he would be very embarassed at all the attention to “awards”). Miss you every single day, Gary.
