My brother Paul passed away unexpectedly on 15 June 2000. This page is a Memorial to him. I wanted to do this because he was such a large influence in my life. When I was six years old, he took me into our backyard and showed me the night sky. This was the start of my love for astronomy. For a birthday present when I was 14, he gave me a subscription to SKY AND TELESCOPE magazine. I have been a continuous subscriber since then and still have all 40+ years of issues. He got me interested in science in general, science fiction, and computers. I followed him to Indiana University where he had majored in mathematics, with a minor in astronomy. I majored in astrophysics. Throughout the years, our common interests kept us in touch, visiting each other when we could, even though we lived in different parts of the country. He was my mentor. He was my friend. He was my brother. He will be missed.
The Hubble Space Telescope photograph above was his favorite. The Hummel "Star Gazer" statue was so indicative of his joy of the heavens. It has special meaning to me because of Paul's teaching me the night sky when I was six. Thank you, Jan (his wife), Jeff (his son), and Jenny (his daughter) for allowing me to keep this part of Paul close to me.
