Here, we only want to write the words used by his former students to give the announcement of his death on the Ampere Magnetic Resonance mailing list:

“Many of you will still remember his passionate address at last years ICMRM. It was hard to imagine at that time that he was already seriously ill. But he defeated death for years and eventually he taught us how to die – brave and with dignity – just as he taught us to live for many decades before that.”
