James left an indelible mark on the careers and lives of so many people both in GII and in his personal life. He will be remembered by all for his spirit, his sense of fun and his generosity. His loss leaves an enormous void in the GII family that will be impossible to fill. James will be missed by his family, friends all the GII staff and the wider Geotechnical and Engineering Community.
