I had Dr. Johnk back in 1984, one of my best professors all of undergraduate study. He allowed open book, always striving his students to understand both theory and application. He will be missed!

It was only today that I was remembering a very kind and gentle man, his name is Dr. Carl Johnk a highly respected professor of Electrical Engineering at University of Colorado at Boulder. I only learned of Dr. Johnk passing today, and must belatedly express our deepest sympathy to all of his family. I am not an academic, and was not a student of Dr. Johnk, but I did some technical work for him while employed as a researcher at the University of Colorado, Boulder during his tenure there. I do remember the deep humanity always displayed in Dr. Johnk, he never judged you by any superficial or inhumane values; but rather by your human character. I remember Dr. Johnk inviting my wife Meichu and myself to his home for dinner and introducing us to his family, it was a such a peaceful and tranquil occasion that evening, one that we will never forget; and just to think that we only considered ourselves as little and ordinary people. Meichu and I will certainly miss this kind, loving and gentle man. "PEACE BE WITH YOU, DR. JOHNK".

His text book was the best one written that I ever came across. He was an exceptional teacher with no equal.

I'm sadden that I learned of his passing today -- almost a year after his death. I'm happy that he touched many students for his fantastic view of engineering over the years. He had such an uncanny ability to combine art with science through his lectures and I took that to heart to this day. He was my inspiration to combine creativity with critical thinking, my example to be a top tier educator, and my motivation to pursue a career in engineering. I'm happy that he led a good life and inspired others to do the same. If you put it into context of the millions of years this solar system has been in existence, I considered myself lucky that I was able to cross my very limited years here on Earth with one of the greatest people I ever respected.

Thank you for being an example.
