I am very very sorry to report that Tom Goforth passed away on Monday, February 26. It was very sudden.
Tom was a great friend and a passionate naturalist. He loved ferns, and geology, and cakes, and trying to explain the nature of the universe and the mythology of all particles. I still can’t believe that I can’t shoot him an email with a picture of some fern and get immediate, elaborate feedback, along with comments like “But I always try to leave a space for unfettered supposition in the family wrecklessaceae without authoritative inflexion…..transparent tongue in cheek.” No one else ever says things like that.
