When Curt joined BBN I had already left, nonetheless at ASA and other societies' meetings we met and discussed many scientific issues, past and present. His interest in statistical energy analysis (SEA) was particularly intense, but not to the exclusion of many other interesting topics in the analysis of structural acoustics and noise control. He was a patient listener and a critic of note, but always gentle and empathetic. I enjoyed and valued his company and, as many others who knew him, will continue to miss his presence.
