Bernie McConnell

Bernie had that rare quality of always trying to see other people’s perspectives even when he disagreed with them. I think that willingness to step outside his own head made him such a creative person, not only in science but also in all other aspects of life. His poetry is legendary at the SOI, and he always managed to bring a smile to people’s faces. I learned a lot from him, be it in the field or during late evenings in the pub in Crail. It is difficult to fathom that we won’t see him at SMRU anymore, but his ideas and spirit will be with us for years to come. My condolences to his family and everyone else who was close to him.
