Remembrances
“…he symbolized what petroleum engineering is all about. He believed and practiced that all human beings are equal and should be treated with respect. From the youngest freshman enrolled in one of his classes to the most powerful CEO sponsoring scholarships and projects at Stanford, he respected the dignity of everyone.”

“Once he touched a life, he continued touching it, sometimes by his presence, but always by what he gave in knowledge, ability to think, and approach to solving problems.”
