On behalf of WG 9, I regret to announce the passing of Dr. Robert Dewar, one of the co-counders of AdaCore, and an enormous force in the early development and continuing success of the Ada Programming Language. He passed away on 30 June 2015, at home, surrounded by family.
For many of our members, Robert was a friend and advisor. As the Convenor, Robert was a friend, colleague, and mentor. Robert's passing leaves a void in the entire computing community, and especially in the Ada world. He will be long remembered.
