Professor Nigel Dennis


Family, friends, colleagues and students mourn the unexpected passing of Nigel Dennis, on April 16 after a brief illness from which we all expected a recovery.

His life and generosity has greatly influenced the life of many, pero su recuerdo y sonrisa perduran.

A private family service was held at Dundee Crematorium on April 23.
