Leading Portland fan John Andrews passed away April 9 at the age of 58. He contended with muscular dystrophy for many years.
Andrews assisted the rebirth of Portland fandom in the 1970s. He was treasurer of the Portland Science Fiction Society and personally fronted the money for the first OryCon in 1979.
I knew John for a long time — his File 770 sub dates back decades — and appreciated his insights into conrunning.
