Fathers’ Day Remembrance

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

I became an engineer because of my father, for whom I’m named.  He understood how projects got done, could see the humor in humanity, and was generous with his time and knowledge.  Dad had great stories to tell about the projects on which he worked, like setting up the first office facsimile machine in the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.  In this video  recorded in 2002, he tells about his experience with the LEM, as the Lunar Excursion Module was first called.
