Ferran Hurtado (1951-2014)

I was deeply saddened to learn that my friend and colleague, Ferran Hurtado, died yesterday (October 2, 2014).  He was an incredible person, researcher, mentor, leader, and collaborator — one of the fathers of the computational geometry field, and one of the kindest people I knew.  He was a wonderful painter, musician, foodie, and probably many more talents I didn't even have a chance to know.

This memorial blog is to post remembrances, photos, letters to Ferran or his family, etc. in any language.  Feel free to add comments to this post, or email me to get permission to make your own post.

Here is a photo from the 2008 Winter Workshop on Computational Geometry in Barbados (which Ferran frequently attended and posed some of the best open problems):


We miss you, Ferran.
