This is very sad news.
Richard will be greatly missed by all of us for his  kindness and modesty. Condolences to his wife Mary, his son and daughter and all his friends and colleagues at Keele University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Brazil and all sand fly and leishmaniasis scientists across the globe.
As a supervisor of my PhD and lifetime mentor, I personally owe him a lot
May God Bless his soul
Dia Elnaiem

Dr Richard Ward will be sadly missed by all those who were lucky enough to have worked with him and known him, and  will be remembered for his extensive contribution to vector biology by all leishmaniac colleagues

It is with great sadness that I learned from Dave Hoole that Richard passed away yesterday morning (27th November). Richard began his sand fly journey with Ralph and myself in Belem and his keen insight into the longipalpis complex paved the way to our understanding of this tremendously important vector. His pioneer work  on its colonization and artificial feeding led to the first experimental transmission of Leishmana infantum chagasi that was published in Nature. His friendship, kindness, patience and good humor will be remembered by his many friends and students.
