I joined Sigma Xi in 1990 under the leadership of Dr. John Ahearne. I have known him since then. I will always remember his smiling face and hearty laugh.

I just want you to know I will be praying you find assurance in God's word, peace in the presence He gives, and comfort in His unwavering love. Sending my heartfelt sympathy.

I remember seeing Dr. Ahearne at the Sigma Xi headquarters. I began working there in 2013, and his office was down the hall from mine. He helped the Society as it moved its headquarters from Connecticut to Research Triangle Park, among other things. He will be missed.
