Sad News

I just received this.  Gene Milligan chaired the X3T9.5/X3T12 committee that
developed the standards for FDDI.  I forward this to the reflectors knowing
that a number of us in 802 also participated in that committee or interacted
with him when 802.3 adopted the FDDI PHYs for 100BASE-TX and 100BASE-FX.

I developed great respect for Gene's abilities and contribution to the
industry over my 17 year association with him.  I will miss that
association, I will miss his dry wit, I will miss him.

Gene Milligan passed away Saturday evening following a heart attack on 
Sunday evening November 5, 2000.

His funeral is Friday, November 17, at St. Andrews United Methodist Church, 
2727 S.W. 119th St., Oklahoma City, OK.

I've worked with Gene on various standards for nearly 20 years. During that 
time, Gene always had the highest personal standard for integrity and work 
ethics. I will miss Gene and his many valuable contributions to standards 
and the standards process.

I've had several people ask me where to send flowers, cards, and/or 
charitable contributions in memory of Gene. Billy Canaday (Gene's 
Administrative assistant) told me that the family requests that any flowers 
be sent to the church to arrive on Friday:

   St. Andrews United Methodist Church
   2727 South West 119th
   Oklahoma City, OK 73170

Those wishing to make a charitable contribution should make it to the 
"Habitat for Humanity". They have a web site, which includes online 
donations, at:

I assume it would be best to send cards to Gene's wife:

   Mrs. Gene Milligan
   2417 Blue Spruce
   Edmond, OK 73034
