GIRARDEAU, MARVIN D.  
MARVIN D. GIRARDEAU Marvin D. Girardeau died peacefully in his sleep on Jan. 13, 2015. A research professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona since 2000, he lived at La Posada in Green Valley with his wife of 58 years, Susan Brown Girardeau. Born in Lakewood, Ohio, on Oct. 3, 1930, he received his B.S. at Case Institute of Technology, his M.S. from the University of Illinois (Urbana) and his Ph.D. from Syracuse University. His postdoctoral studies included work at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study, Brandeis University, Boeing Scientific Research Labs and the Fermi Institute at the University of Chicago. Also professor emeritus of physics at the University of Oregon, he served as associate professor of physics from 1963-67 and as professor of physics from 1967-1995. He was appointed fellow of the American Physical Society in 1979 and was awarded the Humboldt Prize, U.S. Senior Scientist Award, in 1984. For his 80th birthday, he was honored at an international conference in Menorca, Spain, for his research on the behavior of ultracold atomic vapors, which resulted in his discovery, with physicist Lewi Tonks, of Tonks- Girardeau Gas. In addition to his work as a theoretical physicist, Marv enjoyed singing as a tenor in numerous choral groups, playing violin and attending classical concerts. In Eugene, he began cultivating wine grapes and making wine, a hobby he continued in Green Valley. He bought a telescope in Green Valley, joined the local astronomy club, and spent many nights exploring the dark skies. Marvin loved hiking, mountain climbing, running and cross-country skiing. Proud of his Huguenot heritage, he learned to speak French and did research in France and Belgium. He and Sue traveled and made friends all over the world. They frequently hosted international students at their Eugene home. A lover of gadgets, including his Kindle, iPhone and high-powered telescope, he was also a reader and lover of humanities and the arts. He leaves his wife, three daughters, two son-in-laws and four grandchildren, who will all miss his lively intellect and sense of humor. Memorial donations may be made the Music Program at St. Francis-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church, the Posada Life Foundation, the University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences, or a charity of your choice.
