Vale Glenn Johnson

Sadly another STEP stalwart has died. Glenn Johnson was a member of the committee for nine years from 1984 to 1992. His fellow committee members describe Glenn as a sensitive person who loved the natural environment and who was passionate about his family, garden and work with the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. He was a born teacher and explainer.

Glenn’s career commenced as a mathematics teacher then he transferred to the Macquarie University Department of Mathematics on its foundation in 1967 where he studied for a PhD. He ultimately became a professor and head of the School of Computing. His studies included computer modelling for environmental events such as wind flow during bushfires and severe storms.
