Dear friends,?

Sam Gitler passed away last night
after a brief struggle with cancer.
He was 81 years old.

Sam continued to do beautiful mathematics until a
few months ago. Like many mathematicians, I am
grateful for having known Sam, and for his infectious
joy in doing mathematics. He will be missed by everyone
who had the privilege of knowing him.

Sincerely,
Fred Cohen
