Vash was a great and loyal friend to me for 58 years (we met in 1963 at R.I.T. where we both graduated with Engineering degrees.
We worked together at General Dynamics on Goodman Street.
He came to work with me at Digital Equipment Corporation in Massachusetts in 1988 and we continued to keep in touch after we both retired.
I will dearly miss him.
