Dear ASA members,

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Michael Dopita on 22 December.

Mike was a long term fellow of the ASA and served on the ASA Council from 1993-95. Our community will remember his very significant contributions to the field, his broad knowledge across all aspects of astronomy, and his genuine interest in the research of those he met.

The family has indicated that memories and messages of sympathy can be sent to:  farewell.mike at mso.anu.edu.au<mailto:farewell.mike at mso.anu.edu.au>

Our sympathies go to Mike's family and friends.
