    John Burge has passed away. I remember him for his writings, photos, and humor. "Underwater Cave Surveying" may be his best known book. I haven't seen him in the last 15 or so years, but he is not forgotten. RIP John.

    Last I heard he was on Bonaire. Sad to hear he has passed away.

    Sorry to hear about that. I actually run into some of his old survey markers, which I no one takes

    Learned so much from his book.

    The obituary is quite a read. He seems to have lived a very interesting life, an exceptional sort of person.
