I am deeply saddened to hear of your passing, Feliks. You were so influential to me as one of your junior engineers at General Electric Co. in the early 1980's.
You were everything I wanted to be as an engineer, and I always looked up to your great depth of experience and knowledge. Though our relation as colleagues was many decades ago, the experience remains fresh in my mind as if it were yesterday. Now, be at peace.
Sincerely ,
Gregory L Vrabel, MD
