Richard Driscoll 1950-2017
It is with great regret and sadness that we have to inform you of the untimely passing of our friend and colleague Richard Driscoll. Richard passed away on the morning of Saturday 21st October, following a cardiac arrest last week. He is survived by his wife Aviva, sons Adam, Sam and Jonny, and by three grandchildren. They and his wider family, friends and colleagues have our sincerest condolences.
Many people associated with the IBD Registry will have met or worked with Richard in his role as Development Lead. He was a significant driving force behind the Registry’s set up, and worked tirelessly to overcome the challenges involved, with grace and determination.
Richard was a hugely engaging, warm and insightful individual. His impact on patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease has been enormous, and will continue to be felt for years to come. Most of all, Richard was a kind and generous person, who placed his family, community, friends and colleagues before anything. I’m sure many of us have very positive memories of any interaction with Richard, be it large or small. He will be sorely missed.
