Dennis Soard passed away

Postby Lenzenhuber on Fri Feb 20, 2015 5:16 pm

Dennis Soard passed away today after a several year battle with emphysema and cancer.

Dennis wasn't a DS he was the Marine equivalent who did a couple tours in Vietnam. Some DS's may have met him as he worked Tech Support for Sperry/Unisys out of Minneapolis/St Paul in the 80s. I first met him when he came to work at Echo Range/China Lake in the mid 90's. He used to say "Even a moron looks like a genius in a room full of cretins". I tested in the top 1% in IQ when I joined the Navy in 71 but when Dennis was in the room I felt like a cretin. He could see solutions to problems before most people could even see there was a problem. One of the most remarkable people I have had the pleasure to work with.
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
