It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of John Joseph Troidl. The Davis Enterprise has the story here. As regular readers of the Davisite know, John was a passionate defender of public health, whether it was proper protocols and practices for COVID-19 or poor air quality at the Nishi site. His postings to the Davisite can be viewed here.
John had a PhD in public health as well as an MBA, and he also taught public health at several universities. He was an advocate for Health in All Policies and wanted Davis to adopt it. He was never afraid to fight the good fight and stand up for what he believed in, but always with a smile and an easygoing manner.
I will miss him. I encourage people who knew him to put their remembrances and thoughts in the comments below.
