Slán agus beannacht, John J Mahoney

John J. Mahoney, 1952-2012
KUNM is playing Irish music on its folk program today. Which reminded me that tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, Which reminded me of my post-doc mentor at the Univ of Hawaii, who passed away late last fall after a short illness. John, of Irish descent, left this world when he still had a lot to contribute, and he definitely left it in better shape than he found it, courtesy of his efforts.

A short obituary courtesy of the Geochemical Society is here.
