Im not sure which forum is best for this post so please feel free to move it but I belive the classics forum is where most will know his name. My good friend Ken Fulton has passed away. He wrote the survival manual The Light Hearted Astronomer back in the mid '80's and it was very popular. More recently he wrote the sequel The Light Hearted Astronomer Observes Again. He had been hospitalized several weeks ago for an infection and was not able to recover. His wife of 50 years Doris had been keeping friends appraised on his condition for weeks on social media. Ken kept a pretty low profile over the years and could have made many appearances by popular demand but that wasnt his style. He was recently slated to speak at the Texas Star Party but it fell through at the last minute. He had been planning to move into a new place with Doris but covid delayed the move. Ken definitely had more living to do and the astronomical community will definitely feel his loss..
