David Francis Howell (1955 - 2016)

A note from the Department's Senior Administrator, Malcolm Bradbury:

Dear All,

I am sorry to inform you that, following a short illness, David Howell passed away on Thursday 7th April at Wexham Park Hospital. David had recently decided to retire this year which makes this news particularly sad and poignant.

David joined the department in 1993 and worked firstly as an Applied Physicist in Nuclear Physics. In recent years David took on the role of Departmental Laser Safety Supervisor with his usual enthusiasm, industry and attention to detail.

Our condolences go to his wife Anushka and to his son Philip. Details of the funeral arrangements will be confirmed shortly but it is expected to be held on Tuesday 26th April. I will circulate more details when received.

Best wishes



We have now been advised of the funeral arrangements for our friend and colleague David Howell. Full details are given below. If you plan to attend the funeral can you please let John Gillic know as Anushka (David’s wife) has asked to be aware of names and numbers.

The dress code for the day is smart but colourful
