Hi,

My mom worked at Sage Labs for many years and had a great relationship with Ted. Every football season they would have a running bet on the Patriots who were horrible at this time. If the Pats won, my mom would owe Ted a dollar and vice versa. Even though my mom was a Pats fan, she took that bet. I also remember going along to the company parties and everyone there had long sideburns and leisure suits. I learned to dance the Hustle at one of those parties.

I had a stray thought that led me to think of those days and decided to search out Ted. He passed away just two weeks before my mom did.

I knew him only by sight and handshake but Ted Saad made an indelible impression on me by secretly selecting my paper as the outstanding paper of 1979. I only learned of it when I was sitting with my new boss in the opening session of the 1980 MTT Symposium. It was announced and my picture flashed upon this huge screen in front of thousands of people. I did not immediately recognize myself but obviously, I was pleased. Ted made an impressive impact on the microwave industry in the IEEE and as I am sure has been relayed to you, he will be missed. I am sorry this message is late, but I never seem to find out when one of my hero's has died until long after it has happened.

I knew Ted for more than 26 years and worked on several IEEE projects and committees together - notably the then successful ELECTRO. Although we didn't /always/ agree, he had a way of making you reconsider your point, no matter how stubborn or zealously you held onto it, and was always a gentlemen and a gentle, calming
influence. I can still hear his 'Boston' accent advising me on why my view might have been a bit off mark.

But then, he /was/ a Celtics fan and I /am/ a New Yorker .

Rest in peace Ted.

Only a few times in a lifetime do you have the honor of meeting someone that you admire and who also has a great positive influence on your life. Ted Saad was such a man. He encouraged, supported, challenged, instructed, and befriended me early in my career. His influence, dedication and contributions to the microwave industry were immense. His mentoring and support of the Boston area microwave professionals and certainly me surpass my ability to express thanks. We will miss Ted and his lovely wife Fi, their friendship, their love a good Celtics victory, and their joy spending time with all of us. Thank you for your guidance, Ted. It will last many lifetimes.
