18862Watts Humphrey passed away
- Nov 2 8:21 PMMost of you will remember Watts Humphrey. He was a speaker at our VCF East 5.0, on the subject of Fieldata and the MOBIDIC, which were both designed at Camp Evans.
Unfortunately he died a few days ago at age 83. I happened to email him just three weeks ago, and he mentioned having liver cancer. But he seemed very pleased that folks like us care about his legacy. I mentioned that I am trying to nominate the entire Fieldata team for inclusion in next year's InfoAge Wall of Honor ceremony; Watts said, "I would love to participate" if he were able.
