OBITUARIES

A PIONEER
Dennis Gill was one of the originals

09 NOV 2010: Dennis Gill, one of the founding fathers of this industry, died on Saturday. I knew and worked with Dennis for many years, and have always had an abundance of respect and affection for him as a businessman, a colleague and as a human being.


SKAL SHOCKED
Secretary General Jim Power dies suddenly

15 JUN 2010: Sk�l International secretary general, Jim Power, died unexpectedly at his home in Torremolinos, Spain, on Saturday. Power was recently in Frankfurt for the IMEX and in Sydney on June 9, to attend the golden anniversary luncheon of Sk�l International. He was one of the industry’s highly-regarded individuals and was frequently seen at industry events such as the ITB in Berlin and World Travel Market in London, as well as many of Sk�l’s global events


NEIL WINTER
They don’t come any better – or any nicer

Neil Cooper Winter was born in Gillingham, Kent England on November 3, 1935. He started his Travel Career in 1957 when he joined University Tours Ltd after emigrating from Ireland. Later he was vice president of International Sales for Holiday Inn Canada.

 


GODSPEED JAKIE
Travelling companions don’t come any better

 

09 FEB 2009:  I can’t let today pass without paying tribute to one of the best travelling companions ever. Though not much into flying, this little adventurer took to the road with enthusiasm, passion and gusto.  Whether driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains, strolling along  the beach, looking (with unconcealed irritation) for a patch of grass in downtown Manhattan, or strutting along Bourbon Street at midnight, Jake Borenstein Savedra was always a perfect companion and a pleasure to travel with.   


MARK SALTER
A truly good guy

24 JAN 2008:  Being universally admired as a ‘nice guy’ is a very real compliment.  And Mark Salter epitomised the term and truly deserved the moniker.  Mark died on Tuesday - suddenly, stunningly - and way too soon.  His death shocked the travel industry he had been a part of for so long. As word spread amongst his friends, associates and colleagues, the tributes, while shocked and saddened, were very similar.

 


A LIFE WELL LIVED
Marilyn Barker Paulsen July 11,1937 - June 19, 2007

19 JUN 2007: Marilyn Barker Paulson.  If you are a woman executive in this industry – or if you aspire to be one – chances are your road to success was made just a little easier by a very special woman who died Tuesday afternoon.
