Dr. O.E. Hileman Print E-mail
Dear Colleagues,

It is with great sadness that I must tell you that Professor Emeritus Ed Hileman passed away early this morning after spending the past couple of weeks in the hospital.  The family will be having a small, private funeral service, but has promised to hold something in Ed's memory in the near future.  I will provide details as soon as I know them.

Ed retired in 1996 after a 32 year career at McMaster, but maintained a regular presence in the department until just a year or so ago.  He was a great friend to many of us and a strong advocate of the department.
