It is now commonly used as an introductory exercise in computing classes, Roberts said. Conway used his love of games to connect with children, spending time at math camps across the country.Educated at Cambridge University and an Ivy League professor, he avoided “pomp and circumstance,” his wife said.”He was never someone who cared about a person’s pedigree,” Diana Conway said. “He just cared about the person.”Conway with son Gareth in 2002, during Gareth's birthday party.Conway with son Gareth in 2002, during Gareth’s birthday party.Princeton University’s mathematics department issued a short statement after he passed, acknowledging his many awards.

Conway's Game of Life - Wikipedia

The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. The game is a zero-player game, meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, requiring no further input. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves. It is Turing complete and can simulate a universal constructor or any other Turing machine.
