January 2018

It is with deepest sadness that we acknowlege the passing of Robert Dowdell.  He was such an influence in so many people's lives and was a very kind and compassionate man. 

I will be updating his biography to add more information that he had told me over our years of contact.  Mostly just little things but hopefully will give a bit more of a glimpse into a very private life.

This website WILL remain as an archive of his work and a memorial in perpetuity.

Fair winds and following seas, Robert!
