ex-Chairman of Systime dies in hospital after a short illness

We were saddened to hear the news of the passing of John Parkinson, chairman of Systime from the late 1970s until the company's sale to Control Data in 1983. John died in hospital after a short illness. I served as a director of Systime during John's tenure as chairman, and although I can't say we always saw eye to eye, the experience certainly helped me prepare for my own business career post-Systime.

RIP
