Re: [GRG] RIP Dr. Denham Harman, father of “free-radical theory of aging, ” 1916-2014

A great loss. I last saw him at a SENS conference over 10 years ago.
He had a clearly stooped back and shoulders at that time (likely due
to osteoporosis?), but mentally still intake.
I wish these obituaries would give the symptoms leading to the
death, so that we might all learn something of value for ourselves
and others. It seems to me that Dr Harman would have wanted that.
