We are all feeling sad about Jim's passing but some relief that he is at rest. Just about 2 weeks ago he was still talking about attending a microbiology conference at UWO which I found rather touching

This was sent to me from Dr.Jeff Nagge a professor at U of W school of pharmacy . I quote " I enjoyed his great sense of humor,appreciated his generosity and admired his never ending competitive nature. My only regret is not taking him up on his offer to deliver a pharmacology lecture for me.

I have had the honour of working ( UWO - UH) and playing (viola) along side "Sir James" this past 45 years. I will miss being able to tap into his great fund of knowledge on almost any topic. He also knew how to take a power nap better than anyone I know!

I was honored to serve with Dr. Whitby on a number of CSA and AAMI committees. Not only was Jim an internationally recognized leader in the field of radiation sterilization, he will always be remembered as being a gracious and personable human being. His professionalism set a standard that the rest of us can only aspire to!

Dr Witby has been along time friend. I first met him at CSA Technical Committee for Sterilization. My husband and I will always have fmany great memories of him. Such a full life to celebrate
He has visited our home in Nova Scotia during the TC meetings and enjoyed many lobster meals at our home in Cow Bay. My husband John took him on several fishing trips that they both had great fishing and new stories to tell .
He will be missed

When I first came to London in 1973 to attend a year at UWO, one of my courses I took was Microbiology and it was given by Dr. Whitby. I remember fondly his very pleasant demeanor and professional expertise, as well as his typical British sense of humour. He was one of the most cherished and respectable gentlemen in the teaching profession and will be sadly missed.

My deepest sympathies we have lost a great person. I have many fond memories of working James, especially from the Team Gamma seminars that we put on in various parts of the world. He was a very special person.
