So full of life you were, and so approachable. In spite of your highly pressured job responsibilities, you seemed to maintain a straight-ahead focus on “what can we do to get the job done.” I loved how you were always angling for the best solution, instead of looking for someone to blame or criticize. We reflect our true character, even in the midst of the pressures of work. You modeled a striving toward excellence, while also treating your colleagues with respect and dignity. I am grateful to have worked with you, Dean, and will miss you deeply.
