  1. Alex was a great friend and colleague at Northrop. We worked together for many years and then more recently in our retirement Alex and his daughter Diane had been joining some aerospace colleagues for breakfast in Redondo Beach once each month. My most intimate time with Alex was when Alex, Wai Lim and I taught a one week Flight Control Design Workshop in the spring of 1985 at the National Cheng Kong University in Taiwan. The class was sponsored by the then Northrop University. Alex’s wife Gertraud and my wife Rosalie accompanied us on the trip. We all had a great time and our Taiwan hosts were very gracious. I will always remember Alex as a good friend and a great human being.
