It’s strange to find out about the death of your former boss from the Trending Now list on Yahoo. I used to work for this mountain of a man. I’m shocked at how sad this makes me, considering I’ve been expecting it. He was 96 and dying from a broken heart after his beloved wife of 74 years, Irena, died in August at the age of 95. He was the most brilliant, unintentionally funny and intentionally terrifying man I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. It was an honor working for someone who changed history. I would get the worst anxiety when preparing to call him on the phone (His strong accent, advanced age, and my distaste for talking to anybody on the phone was the worst mixture) but it was always worth it.
RIP Dr. Koprowski
