When our group moved from Natick to Foxboro, I had the good fortune to share an office with Hans for at least 2 years. I was a novice in programming & the industry. Hans patiently guided me. He taught me well. I worked at Foxboro for 34 years and I owe a great deal of my success to the jump start Hans provided me. RIP good friend.
