Barney C Black, Champion-at-Large

Barney C Black passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 29, 2015 after a valiant battle against his ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). His most recent job titles

included in reverse order: Senior Systems Engineer, Principal Engineer, Engineering Supervisor, and Sales Engineer. Job titles from the beginning included

TV repairman, low-cost housing renovator, diving manager, nondestructive tester of nuclear submarines, and aluminum siding salesman. However, the title

he loved most of all was Champion-at-Large for the Integrated Product Teams of the US Coast Guard's failed Deepwater Project. Hobbies included Vietnam

War protestor, SCUBA diver, and Kindle reader. Barney also served on the Board of Directors of the International Hydrofoil Society and both published its

newsletter and maintained its website. Barney's lifelong motto is: Semper Cogitans -- Nil Amplius Solvendum (Always Thinking – No Extra Charge). He is

survived by his wife and two sons; Helena C Black, Robert J. Black, and R. Terry Black; and remembered fondly by his brother and sister, John R. Black and

Nancy Dillard. Finally, this from beyond the grave: "This is Barney Black. I approved this obituary."

"Dear Barney, es muy dificil pensar que ya no estas físicamente entre nosotros, pero estarás por siempre en nuestras Mentes y en nuestros Corazones. Fuiste..." Roxi Dillon (Miami, FL)
