Only just seen this. I'm shocked to say the least, as I haven't been reading PerlMonks or London.pm for a few weeks. Ivor was one of the good guys and I've very glad to have know him. I have good memories of him trying to convince me that I should try some Real Ale instead of Guinness :)

Our last sightseeing expedition was with Karsten, Cog and Abigail at the NASA Space Centre in Houston (here Ivor is second from the left).
Farewell my friend, you'll be missed.
