I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Ochi when I started my career at the David Taylor Model Basin. He was so kind and patient, and taught me so much during the nearly 14 years we worked together. He was dedicated and focused on his work, and not limited by any 40 hour work weeks. Although Mickey had little free time after his work, he enjoyed photography, opera, and preparing gourmet meals. Anytime my family was invited to his house, we knew we were in for a royal treat. Our family will miss him greatly.
