It is with great sadness, that I would like to inform the liquid crystal community of the passing of Prof Wojtek Kuczynski of the Institute of Molecular Physics in Poznan, Poland. Those who knew him will agree with me, that Wojtek was a kind and very modest, yet excellent liquid crystal experimentalist and mentor. He will be greatly missed by friends and colleagues.
