Following on from the announcement about the death of Philip Eden I have been emailed this by Roger Brugge of the Climatological Observers Link. Screen Shot 2018-01-10 at 11.55.47

“Announcement: Philip Eden, 1951-2018

I have this morning received the following message from Philp Eden’s
brothers, John and David:

It is with profound sadness that we have to report the death of
our brother, Philip Eden (Geoffrey Philip Eden), Meteorologist,
Broadcaster and Author, on 4th January 2018. He had been suffering
from Lewy Bodies dementia, but died as the result of head injuries
sustained after collapsing and falling several days earlier. He died
peacefully in a nursing home whilst receiving palliative care.

Please pass this sad news on to colleagues who knew or worked with Philip.

Details of the funeral arrangements will follow in a few days, but
anyone interested in attending should contact David Eden

John and David Eden (brothers)

Members will join with me in expressing condolences to Philip’s family,
and mourning Philip’s passing. COL will be represented at Philip’s funeral,
and myself or Roger will gladly pass on any messages from members.

Stephen Burt
COL Chairman
10 January 2018”

Many tributes have been paid on Twitter and elsewhere.
