TEWARSON--Reginald Prabhakar, 83, of Stony Brook, NY. Born 1930 in Pauri, India, eldest of seven children of Seth and Chand Tewarson. Deeply mourned by wife Ghenwah, daughters Monique and Anita, grandchildren Katja Martine and Stefan, brothers Archibald and Naresh, sister Laxmi, as well as many friends and colleagues whose lives he touched. An extraordinarily warm, engaged, and loving person, with an endless sense of humor and unique perspective on life that drew people to him. Coming to the United States in 1957 as a Crusade Scholar, to earn his Ph.D in Mathematics at Boston University, he had a distinguished career from 1964-2000 at SUNY Stony Brook and was named Leading Professor in both Applied Math and Statistics and Physiology and Biophysics. Major achievements include pioneering research in sparse matrices, and modeling of the human kidney sponsored by the National Institute of Health. He will always be in our hearts.
