I have just heard about Carol's passing. I had the pleasure of working with Carol with the SCDA. I had several opportunities to sit in his office and discuss petroleum issues and always appreciated his help while working in the petroleum lab. My husband and I ran into him and his family at a local restaurant. It was a joy to meet the family that brought him so much joy. My thoughts are with you.
