  9. Izzy, what a wonderful person. We worked together for an awesome project called the International Space Station and worked for great company Boeing and attended and served the Parish of St. B’s. And yes we both attended the A&I University in Kingsville (though not at the same time). Your contributions will not be forgotten. At Boeing you were part of the HSI team as long as I can remember and if I remember correctly started in FQT (about 1997 but don’t quote me). You supported USOS stage testing and the Visiting Vehicle testing for Dragon and the HTV vehicles, helping with test requirements, test reviews, etc. Well until we meet again. Catherine we are praying for you! God Bless! Y.B.I.C.

  11. My deepest condolences to Catherine and the rest of the family. Izzy was a good friend and colleague. I will always remember his sense of humor and good nature, but most of all for being a good father. I remember his joy of being Aiden’s grandpa. I will miss seeing his smile and talking with him. He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. Rest in peace my friend.

  13. Izzy? Was he? Will he ever be?

    I once posted those words after his name on a white board at work.

    He is! He was! He will always be……my friend!

    Going to miss you dearly, Izzy.
