Prof Janko Kersnik - 1960-2015
WONCA Europe Honorary Secretary
June 01, 2015
On Wednesday May 20th 2015 we said farewell to Janko Kersnik who died at the age of 55 years. At his funeral, on a rainy afternoon, we stood in the village of Dovje (Slovenia), looking towards Mojstrana where he was born in 1960. We could see the mountains he loved. A large crowd of family, community members, friends who shared his hunting passion, national and international colleagues and friends could still not believe that he had passed away, and that his voice would never be heard again.

He was also WONCA editor from the beginning of WONCA (1972) until 2001. He was 89 years old, still lived alone at home, and died working at his desk. David was a great source of support and trusted advice and anecdotes, a philanthropist, and a great advocate for family medicine.
