Default Philip Eden: news

.... I've had permission from Stephen Burt (COL Chairman) to post the following: it's a sad tale I'm afraid for one so gifted in his field . . . . and by modern standards relatively young. For those that don't know, Philip initiated the setting-up of this newsgroup.

Martin.


Philip Eden

I have recently obtained an update on Philip Eden’s health from his brother, John, as follows: Philip is suffering from Parkinson’s disease and Lewy Body dementia. In the last few weeks his condition has deteriorated markedly, and we have doubts as to whether he still recognises family members. He is now unable to hold any kind of conversation, and his total vocabulary consists of the single word “no”.

Lewy Bodies dementia is linked to Parkinson's disease and is very aggressive. His condition was mis-diagnosed as depression / anxiety some 5 years ago, and has been a contributory factor in his behaviour since 2011. Philip has been cared for in a specialist care home for several months now. I'm not sure how much Philip will understand, but cards and best wishes are always welcome and may prove beneficial to him.

May I encourage members who knew Philip through his many years of active involvement and support for COL to send a best wishes card, or a Christmas card, to him at the address above, to show that he has certainly not been forgotten within our community.

Thanks for that Martin. I only met him once, when I went with Ron to see
his weather stations and a look round his library. He was very friendly
to us and we had an enjoyable lunch with him. His knowledge was immense
and probably under utilised by the media.

It's all very sad. I've known Philip and worked with him intermittently for
more than 40 years. He offered so much to meteorology over all those years and,
if he was still able, would have continued to do so today. As you say Martin,
by today's standards he is relatively young and is most unfortunate to be
afflicted in this way. We can only offer our thoughts and best wishes, although
such emotions seem very futile in the circumstances.

That is so bloody sad and so bloody miserable. He burnt so brightly and is now just a flickering odd reminder of the person he once was.

Yes, it's very sad. I'm still using a minimum thermometer he let me have.

In fact, it was his incredible knowledge of weather statistics that sparked my 1st post to USW so many years ago.

Despite his 'fame' he always struck me as a very humble and down to
earth person, being more than willing to converse with the likes of me!

What a terribly cruel thing to happen, especialy to someone relatively
young.

My first post was about statistics too but I learned not to trust them without more thought. I think it was Mr Eden that set me looking at singularities. I am sure it was someone like him that corrected my ideas about criticality.

All lost in the streams of time to me now and the pity of it is that we are all going that way.

My father died of a similar condition. So I know what his family are going
through right now. What can I say, his work and his memory will live on.
Let's hope the suffering is not prolonged.
