We were sad to learn that Stanley A. Marash died. Stan was a big supporter of the NY/NJ Metropolitan Section, a former Chair of the Section and recipient of our Ellis R. Ott Award as well as other ASQ medals. For those not familiar with Stan, one can get a very good description at the Quality Digest site:
