Roger Vellacott Recently we learned with sorrow of the death of Roger Vellacott in November, from cancer.

Roger was a significant contributor to Firebird and its community from the earliest days, as a voting member of the Firebird Foundation and a regular contributor to support forums. The company he led, Passfield Data Systems, in Bath, U.K., is a Firebird sponsor.

We extend our sincere condolences to Roger's family and his colleagues at Passfield.
