With great sadness, I learned today, October 15, 2009, of Julian's death. He was a dear friend and mentor. We worked together, travelled together and collaborated on many projects during our community college years. He was a dedicated professional who willingly assisted his colleagues; and, at all times he was a gentleman. To Nevim and other family members, I wish for you Peace...

Julian was one of the nicest human beings I have ever met. As his illness progressed he could not remember things well and as I helped him down the steps of my house he said, "I do not even now who you are. Thank you for helping me." I said, "You have helped countless people you did not know. Now we are helping you."

Nevim, Arthur, Wanda and family.

Thinking of you during this difficult time.

I knew Julain when working with the Community College System. He was quite a problem solver and willing to help with problems and challenges.

He was great at his job, but more important, devoted to his family.

My deepest sympathy to each of you. He will be missed by us all.

I was saddened to hear of Julian's passing. We worked together at Community Colleges, in fact, he hired me when I applied for a job with MIS and stayed there for many years. He was such a patient teacher when we were all learning new computer applications many years ago. We loved teasing him about his seemingly unkempt desk, but he had everything right where he wanted it!!

My sincere sympathies go out to Nevim, Arthur, Wanda and all the family. Julian was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word!!
