|In Memory of Dr. Phil Linerode|
It seems only yesterday, I could I hear Phil sharing his advice over a plate of food at Thai Taste, a place we both liked to eat at. In truth, it’s been many years since I last heard Dr. Philip Linerode’s voice, and while connecting with someone via LinkedIn last week, the news came suddenly, although it was over a year old:
Guess that you haven’t heard.
Phil passed away a year ago. He had a heart attack here in the office. The ambulance took him the the hospital and he seemed that he was doing OK but then a 2nd one hit.
However, over the last four months…During that time frame, I assumed the primary responsibility as local Professor of Record (POR) for the Research Techniques and Procedures class. Additionally he has provided our Testing and Evaluation department with technical support, information and recommendations as we have investigated data collection and analysis tools. As such, Miguel has been my peer, my confidant, my supervisor, and most meaningfully, my friend.
It has been the collective weight of those experiences that allow me to enthusiastically encourage you…
I have a plaque that says ‘In quietness and confidence shall be thy strength’.
Thank you, Phil. You have achieved timelessness in eternity, so I pray these words may find you, though they be a year late.
