Dead at 92, the Rev John Graham.  
My Dad and I would work together for hours over his Guardian and Observer puzzles together when I was a kid. Araucaria was amazing, a fizzingly creative teacher of the love of words.
Earlier this year he announced his terminal illness in a crossword. Yesterday lunchtime, for old times' sake I tried out his most recent puzzle on the website, and found 'nil by mouth' among the answers.
Readers recall some of their favourite Araucaria clues:

Sadly missed.
 
I've only just discovered that my favourite ever clue "Heggs (11)" was one of his.
