Dr. Strull played a key part in my career. Because of him I had access to a few programs at Westinghouse which gave me a much appreciated perspective on the role of Technology at both the Westinghouse Research Labs and at Westinghouse Baltimore. He was a mentor and friend. I was always grateful when he found the time to drop by at my office in the Gene Strull Building for a Chat and Exchange of Ideas. Gene was a very very creative engineer and had important roles in various military areas which helped Westinghouse immensely. I will miss him greatly. He was always there with an encouraging word and a profound technical insight.

So sorry I didn't hear in time to attend the service. In reading the outstanding condolances one jumped out at me--his humor. I once asked him what the most important thing he had ever learned about presentations to customers was and he simply replied, "Learning to walk backwards." I was puzzled and asked him to explain and he reminded me of all the tours he had taken people through ATL where he would talk to groups while he was walking backwards. I can still see him doing it.

I was sorry to hear of Dr. Strull's passing. From my humble perspective, He was an incredible individual. Dr. Strull was a role model for aspiring technical professionals, and modest about his accomplishments. He worked tirelessly during his 38+ years at Westinghouse, then continued to support the defense industry as a consultant for Northrop Grumman for more than a decade. He had a couple dozen patent disclosures (including the first molecular electronics device) and authored 50+ publications, one of which was: Electronic Enterprise: Stories from the History of Westinghouse Electronic Systems (which is still distributed by the National Electronics Museum, Linthicum, MD: www.nationalelectronicsmuseum.org). He was a Life Fellow, IEEEE, and was awarded the Government Industry Service Award and the Frederik Philips Award. In 1994 Purdue University named him Outstanding Electrical Engineer. He served on the Army Science Board, NASA Advisory Council, Defense Science Board, NRAC, and the National Science Foundation. Above all else, Dr. Strull was the ultimate executive: a genuine contributor with significant managerial responsibility who planned and put great ideas into effect all while respecting those who worked with him. Dr. Strull consistently had a smile and kind word for everyone. He and his work ethic will be missed.
