Sadly, since our last inSight magazine our good friend and colleague Paul Traynor has passed away. Paul died suddenly at his home in Carrickmacross on the morning of April 16th.
Paul worked with NCBI since 1999 as our chief technical support officer. Ever patient and always ready to work on the most complex of technical issues he was the man who found technical solutions for so many people.
He gave tirelessly of his own time, often working well into the evenings and at weekends to ensure that everyone got the very best from their technology. It is evident Paul helped and made a huge impression on a huge amount of people, when we informed people of his passing through our Facebook page, 113 people left comments under the post about his great work.
To his wife Teresa, and to his family, we extend our deepest sympathy.
Paul Traynor was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. His knowledge and the lengths at which he went to use it to help others was unparalleled in our community. All of us at NCBI are honoured to have worked with and been a friend of this wonderful man, who we will all miss so much. May he rest in peace.
