What a great list of achievements! He will be missed by many I am sure. It is interesting to me that he had been teaching at WPI, what that says to me is he wanted to give back to the next generation of engineers.

To me this news is especially disturbing as I had a personal, spiritual and professional relationship with Dimitry. He and many others like him emigrated from Russia to Europe and then the United States in order to escape the genocide of Bolshevik communist against ethnic Russians; His deep allegiance to the Russian Orthodox faith which continues to thrive in the United States. His contribution to science was enormous albeit his commitment to humanity was equality great.

I knew of Dimitry and was privledged to work with him briefly at AMP. His contributions to electronic interconnect technology cannot be overestimated. He had realistic vision founded in a deep understand of interconnect technologies that enabled him to make these major contributions from which we continue benefitting.

A true leader in our industry and quite a character as well. Most of my interaction with Dimtry was during his time at AMP although he was well known already due to his accomplishments at Maine Research Corp. He was a wealth of knowledge and always willing to help young engineers. Jim McElroy
