I just received this. Gene Milligan chaired the X3T9.5/X3T12 committee that
developed the standards for FDDI. I forward this to the reflectors knowing
that a number of us in 802 also participated in that committee or interacted
with him when 802.3 adopted the FDDI PHYs for 100BASE-TX and 100BASE-FX.
I developed great respect for Gene's abilities and contribution to the
industry over my 17 year association with him. I will miss that
association, I will miss his dry wit, I will miss him.

Gene Milligan passed away Saturday evening following a heart attack on
Sunday evening November 5, 2000.
His funeral is Friday, November 17, at St. Andrews United Methodist Church,
2727 S.W. 119th St., Oklahoma City, OK.
I've worked with Gene on various standards for nearly 20 years. During that
time, Gene always had the highest personal standard for integrity and work
ethics. I will miss Gene and his many valuable contributions to standards
and the standards process.
I've had several people ask me where to send flowers, cards, and/or
charitable contributions in memory of Gene. Billy Canaday (Gene's
Administrative assistant) told me that the family requests that any flowers
be sent to the church to arrive on Friday:
St. Andrews United Methodist Church
2727 South West 119th
Oklahoma City, OK 73170
Those wishing to make a charitable contribution should make it to the
"Habitat for Humanity". They have a web site, which includes online
I assume it would be best to send cards to Gene's wife:
Mrs. Gene Milligan
