I know a bit more about this now.  Steven Van Sickle was the first
person who died from COVID-19 that I knew fairly well.  He was
president of Alcor before Tanya.

His suspension did not go well.


> He was an occasional poster here for a long time.  A local, worked with a startup doing research on tissue preservation headed by Tanya Jones who was Max?s predecessor as Alcor director.  Steve and I used to go to lunch once in a while, then go back and talk about feedback control mechanisms that could be used in his research.  He was a hell of a good guy, kindhearted, smart as a whip.  He will be missed.  BillW I regret you never had a chance to meet him.
