Father John was a broadcaster for more than 40 years
The broadcaster Father John Fitzsimmons has died at the age of 68.
The Roman Catholic priest, who presented The Greetings Programme on BBC Radio Scotland for many years, died on 17 May after a long illness.
In addition to his media work, Father John gained prominence for some outspoken criticism of the church.
BBC Scotland's head of programmes, Maggie Cunningham, said she was "deeply saddened" to hear of Father John's death and he would be "sadly missed".
"He was a big man with a big personality, erudite and compassionate, and anybody who met or worked with Father John would benefit from his life-enhancing qualities," she said.
Father John Fitzsimmons was born in Paisley, Renfrewshire, in 1939 and ordained in Rome 1963.
He was also the rector of the Scots College in Rome and had been involved in broadcasting for more than 40 years.
