It is with great sadness that the Fondazione Mediterraneo acknowledges that our friend Robert Howell died peacefully at 5:15 am this morning at the Rowans Hospice in his home town in England. Robert succumbed to cancer after fighting the disease for many years, despite having received the best available medical treatment.

Robert dedicated his life to public service, firstly through his brilliant career in the Royal Navy and later with AFCEA, where he served as its Director General for ten years. Robert was innovative, dedicated to his work and patriotic, and he was always ready and willing to carry out his tasks with great enthusiasm and a sense of humour. We will miss him dearly.

Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Joanna Howell and his family.
