Buzz is the epitome of engineer. He starts in engineering and advances to management. Although I haven't read any of his works, you can tell he's a bright man.
Thanks for paying tribute. It's nice to see a mechanical engineer honoured for his qualities. Many people want to work at Disney as a ride designer of some variety. They see the end product and want to be part of the process. That's a terrific thing. The problem is that they don't understand the insufferable frustration of engineering, management, and/or economics training and education that goes into these positions. It's not all fun, games, and magic. Buzz was clearly a testament to that.

A sad loss and our commiserations to his family.

Truly a great man and an asset to the themed entertainment world. He will be missed.
