Very sorry to hear about Erv. I worked in the same office with him for quite a while and he was always smiling, but quiet and I always wondered what he was up to. As a programmer, he knew his work well and people always looked up to him. He was a wonderful, sweet person that worked while he was retired about four days a week, but never on Friday. It was a joy to know him. He will be missed. My best to his family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Erv was a good man. I worked with him at DATAIR for many years and Andy Hoskins and I would try to visit him a couple of time a year when he was still in Naperville. I will miss him
