Professor Rawlings passed away in January 2012. Before his untimely death he was the Head of Astrophysics at Oxford University. He was a leading member of the LOFAR-UK community and played a major role in the construction of the UK LOFAR station during the critical build phase. He was a driving force of many other international projects, not just those in Great Britain, and was an outstanding leader and mentor to his staff and students.
