Dr. Paul Farmer who founded Partners in Health in Haiti in 1987 died on Monday February 21, 2022. He was a young man, only age 62. 

I'd been looking for a memorial from a colleague and on February 25,  Goats and Soda (NPR) published these memories by  Dr. Sriram Shamasunder who knew him as a student, friend and colleague, written as he wrote "with love and tears."  

Many of us first learned about Dr. Paul Farmer through Tracy Kidder's splendid book Mountains Beyond Mountains. This link is about the book's content and includes a quote from Kidder about Dr. Farmer which provide some of the author's thoughts on writing about this remarkable man.
