In Memoriam: John Greiner & Steve Fawthrop

Tuesday May 24, 2022

We have received news that two longtime go players have passed, John Greiner (1947-2022) and Stephen Fawthrop (1953-2022). Fawthrop, a mathematics professor, was on the AGA rating committee which, in about 1990, set up the current rating system; read more about his go career here.
A celebration of Greiner’s life will be held Sunday, May 29, from 2 until 5 p.m. at The Rural Retreat Depot, 105 W. Railroad Avenue, Rural Retreat, VA.
In lieu of flowers or cards for Steve Fawthrop, send a donation in his name to the local Floyd County (Virginia) Humane Society, to the Best Friends animal charity, or your own local animal charity.
