I have the sad duty to announce that our dear friend and colleague Dr Darrell Alec Patterson, Senior Lecturer in Chemical Engineering, passed away on Sunday 19 February 2017.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Dr Emma Emanuelsson Patterson, and their three children.

Details for Darrell's funeral can be found here.

We know that Darrell's death will affect colleagues and friends on campus and are offering a range of support to students and staff:

  • If you are a student, counselling support is available by emailing the Student Health & Wellbeing Team: listening@bath.ac.uk
  • If you are a member of staff, counselling support is available from the Staff Counselling Service.
  • The Chaplaincy staff are happy to talk with anyone who has been affected, in total confidence. Please email chaplaincy@bath.ac.uk or Nigel Rawlinson. During term time there is usually a chaplain available on week days from 10am till 5pm; please feel free to drop in for a chat.

Thank you.
