Remembering Chuck Landis: a GSNZ tribute
A memorial event for Chuck Landis (1938–2020) was held on Saturday 13 February 2021 in the Waitati Hall, Waitati, north of Dunedin, bringing some closure to family, friends and colleagues. Chuck died peacefully in Dunedin Hospital on 11 July 2020 after suffering a stroke two days prior. A public funeral could not be held at the time because US family members were not able to get to New Zealand.
GSNZ wishes to compile a tribute to Chuck. This will be a stand-alone digital GSNZ Miscellaneous Publication with limited printing of hard copies planned for a nominal price of $15–20 per copy (incl. GST and postage). The final price will depend on the level of interest and the number of written tributes received.
Hamish Campbell has agreed to act as Compiler. In terms of style and content, it will be similar to the dedicated GSNZ Newsletter Issue 19A (2016) compiled by Cam Nelson in ‘Remembering Bob Carter’.
If you wish to prepare a written tribute to the memory of Chuck Landis, please communicate directly with Hamish. A template for written tributes is available here.
The deadline for tributes is 30 June 2021, with publication planned for July or August 2021.
