Re: [802SEC] Jim Carlo
I share Stuart's sentiments.
Jim was a great friend and a great man. He was as nice and warm a guy as you'll ever meet. He rolled out the welcome mat when I first came to him to talk about standards for broadband wireless in 1998, and then he shared his wisdom while mentoring me and the new working group. Jim was a brilliant standardization builder, leader, and innovator. I salute him and will miss him.

>> Dear EC Members,
>> It is with a heavy heart I must let you know I just found out late tonight Jim Carlo passed away. I recently spoke to him--he was not doing to well, but hanging in there as best he could in his battle with cancer. For those of you that new him, he was a great representative of 802 and the Standards Association, and a mentor to me. I will miss him. Rest in peace Jame T. Carlo--the 802 community shall mourn for you.
