        (1948-2013)






        Just over four years ago, after he sent me a picture of him standing
        with Dr. Avi Hurvitz, I asked Victor (in an e-mail) what was written in
        cuneiform on his sweater vest.
        He answered, "The vest says "Mr. A-wi-ig-dur", same things as is on my
        kippah."
        I cherish the many years of correspondence I had with him on many
        subjects and miss his wit and wisdom.
        May his family and many friends find some consolation in happy memories.
        Yehi Zichro Baruch!
