Our beloved friend and colleague Gary Goodman passed away on 14 February 2017. Gary had been the secretary of Oak Foundation since 1998. To his colleagues, he was a pillar of strength. We will always miss his spirit and enthusiasm for life and work. We will also miss his good humour, his optimism and his helpfulness. Our lives were enriched by Gary and we will remember him fondly and with affection. He will continue to inspire us in all the work we do in support of our Trustees and to achieve the mission of Oak Foundation.
