Abstract

It was with great sadness that we all heard that David Locker passed away on 22 April 2010. David was so committed to his work and dedicated to his career in the social and behavioural sciences in dentistry. He truly can be called a pioneer in his field. When we heard of David’s sudden and far too early death, the e‐mail correspondence exploded all over the world. All of us, despite our sadness, wanted so much to help to honour David’s work and legacy. Two very special and unforgettable memorials – one in Toronto, where he worked for many years right up until he died, and the other in Sheffield, where he started his career – have already been held with colleagues and friends from all over the world attending. David’s career began at University of Sheffield in the late sixties, where he obtained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery with honours. Coincidentally, his last degree, an Honorary Doctor of Science, was also awarded by Sheffield. In the years separating these two degrees, David was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Services Administration with distinction from the University of Leeds, followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Sociology awarded with
