I had the privilege of reading privately the Mahābhāṣya with S. D. Joshi in December 1963, when I was working on my doctoral dissertation (on the 14th āhnika).  In addition to the clarity of his comment, I enjoyed participating in a tradition of oral instruction of vyākaraṇa of which he was a master.  He remained a dear friend and an example of positive scholarship.

With sadness we learn of the demise of Prof. Shivaram Dattatray Joshi, who has been for many decades, in the words of his friend, student and close collaborator Dr. J.A.F. Roodbergen, “il maestro di color che sanno in the field of Sanskrit grammar.” He will live on, to use Brendan Gillon's terms, in "his published work" and in "his erudite students" (who have become the teachers of Pāṇini-students of my own generation).   
>A bibliography of his publications up to 1989 is found in:
>Pāṇinian Studies - Prof. S.D. Joshi Felicitation Volume
>(ed. by Madhav M. Deshpande, Saroja Bhate)
>Michigan: Univ. of Michigan, Center for South and Southeast Asian Studies, 1991.
>The same publication contains a Preface by Prof. Madhav Deshpande with further details about the life and career of Prof. S.D. Joshi (accomplished vyākaraṇācārya before reaching the age of 20, “discovered” by Prof. D.H.H. Ingalls in the early 1950s, Ph.D. at Harvard Univ. in 1960).
>After his 65th birthday, from 1991-2011, fourteen volumes on the Aṣṭādhyāyī of Pāṇini appeared with the Sahitya Akademi in New Delhi.

>Vol. fifteen in the series, prepared by J.A.F. Roodbergen alone (and dedicated to S.D. Joshi), appeared in Pune at the Vaidika Samshodhana Mandala in 2011.
>Other supplements to the 1991 list of publications (articles by him, by him together with P. Kiparsky and by him together with J.A.F. Roodbergen) can be found in the section “References” in A Dictionary of Pāṇinian Grammatical Terminology (by J.A.F. Roodbergen),  Pune: Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, 2008.

>One of his last public speeches was probably his Keynote Address in January 2009 at the Third International Computational Linguistics Symposium in Hyderabad (see “Background of the Aṣṭādhyāyī” p. 1-5 in Sanskrit Computational Linguistics : Third International Symposium, Hyderabad, India, January 2009, Proceedings, Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence 5406, ed. by Amba Kulkarni and Gérard Huet, Heidelberg: Springer Verlag, 2009).
