Not sure what to say?

I worked for Chao for 26 years. I always found him to be an open, intelligent and charming man. I enjoyed his presence immensely.
There was one time at Dallas Semiconductor wherein I had received a poor annual review, not horrible just not what I was expecting. I asked to meet with him concerning this issue. When we met, I pointed out many of the great
accomplishments I had made for the company. I also admitted to owning a minor lot scrap event. I wanted to know why I was graded so...

Chao was a brilliant, modest, progressive man, that was great to work for. My heart goes out to his family.

One morning I was walking to the HR and I saw Mr. Mai, that was the second time I saw him, but he remember my name. Wow

I remember walking through the fab at Dallas Semiconductor. Vin Prothro said it was called Fab 11 (I think) because it was the eleventh fab he & Chao had built. Such a big task! But my main memory is that he was a very kind man.

Sincerest condolences on the passing of Mr. Mai. My thoughts are with you at this time of sorrow.
