RIP Jack Jun 10

What sad news to wake up to.

My first ever Kudoz points came courtesy of Jack back in 2008.

A true loss to the profession and to this site, where he will be sadly missed.

Goodbye, Mr. Doughty Jun 10

Although I never had the opportunity to meet him in person, I come across him on Proz.com several times. My sincere condolences to his family during these difficult times. I know what bereavement is like, it is terrible.

Anyway, hope the heavens open up and welcome a great translator!

It is a big loss Jun 10

for the whole community, and especially, for us, translators, working with Russian. Jack was among a few native English speakers who actively participated in Kudoz. As Alistair pointed out, he was a role model for us. Highly professional.

RIP Jun 11

A former military turned into translator. A rather unusual career path...
It was difficult not to notice his contributions on the fora: helpful and to the point.
Truly, a loss for this community.

The Russian-language forum... Jun 17

has some nice things about Jack, including (so far) a photo of him as a young kid in uniform in 1947, and his translations of poems by Vysotsky. https://www.proz.com/forum/russian/335504-jack_doughty_умер.html#2799919
