4 June 2019
It is with enormous sadness that we mark the loss of esteemed colleague and cherished friend, Dalmer Hoskins, who passed away in Washington DC on June 4th after a sudden illness.
Dalmer was a dedicated public servant who made a significant contribution to the refinement of global thinking on population ageing during his long and impressive career. He brought to the field a vast and unique expertise in international social security policy in particular. He did so with warmth and humanity and humour – no small feat in an area that can often be dry and technical. Dalmer is survived by his much-loved wife Irene, who in her own right is an eminent figure in the ageing community, his son Gabe, his daughter Nora, his grandchildren and his mother. Dalmer`s family would like to direct any remembrances, condolences and photos to the following email…..email@example.com. There will be a memorial service in late summer or early Fall. Dalmer leaves behind him a very large void in many of our personal and professional lives but his sizeable impact on the world remains.
