27 September 2019

It is with great sadness that we heard of the passing of our former PhD student, Justin Zylstra, on September 23, 2019. We will remember Justin as a funny bright young man, who loved philosophy and never missed an occasion to talk about David Lewis.

Justin leaves behind his wife, Riin Sirkel, whom many of you will remember. Riin and Justin met when she was a Killam postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alberta. They have 16-month old son, Aalep. Our condolences to Riin, Aalep, and all of Justin's family.
