This is indeed very sad news. Adrian has been the bedrock of CCSDS ever since it began and certainly during my own involvement over the last 13 years. We are going to miss his drive, enthusiasm and common sense.

Subject: [CMC] Very sad news

It is with the deepest possible sorrow that I must inform my colleagues that Adrian Hooke passed away this prior weekend.  He has been struggling with illness for some time.

Adrian established the very foundation of our work, and grew to be close friends with many of us.  This is a major loss to our community, and to many of us as individuals.   I am very happy that Adrian could make it to the CCSDS spring meeting last year, so we could recognize him with the award.  I will keep Adrian's smiles as we presented him with the award as one of my best memories of our time with him.

Initial contact with his family indicates that their arrangements are for the family only.  If that changes, or if we get any other info, I will pass it along.
