Honoring Ray Williamson, www.ray-optics.com

Submitted by Doug Essex

I met Ray my first day of professional employment and in all the years since have only confirmed my impression that he was one of the best engineers I've ever met - knows his field inside and out, if he doesn't know the answer he can at least bound the answer with excellent physical intuition and approximations. Clear thinking, fearlessly rational and a good friend. Thanks for everything
