Goodbye David Routh

I went to David Routh's funeral yesterday. His death was quite sudden - I saw him over the summer and he seemed (and I think was) fine at that time. David was a much-loved figure at both the Bristol and Exeter psychology departments and he'll be sorely missed. I never knew much about his published work - I knew him as a research seminar contributor par excellence - but his most cited work was Routh (1971), which argued that transfer from short-term acoustic store to a more persistent memory store was passive rather than active.
