Sad news that Roger Hui has passed away on October 18, 2021.
All I have so far is a reference to this at Dyalog:

I never met Roger Hui even though I worked at I.P.Sharp many
years ago (around 1972-1976) but Roger was an admirable force
in the world of APL and of course J.
Condolences.

I was born in the same city as Roger. However, not many people there know APL, J and Mr. Roger Hui. When I talk to my fellows about APL (with/without a demonstration) they simply think I am out of my mind. But I will continue to tell people about the languages.

Rest in peace, Roger. Thank you for your work on APL and J language. Hopefully when we meet in our after life, we can have some fun of J together.
