In Memoriam: Chuck Clerecuzio
The AIChE Delaware Valley Section mourns the loss of our beloved friend – Chuck Clerecuzio. Chuck sadly passed on November 1, 2017. This is a tremendous loss for everyone who knew him. He was an amazing father to Joseph, the best husband a wife could want, and a friend of unrivaled loyalty.
His passion for life was evident in all that he did. One of his favorite things was to teach other engineers – he was an engineer’s engineer. Chuck was an active board member and past-president of the DVS chapter. He was always excited to help out fellow engineers however they needed. He and his family enjoyed hosting and BBQing for the section at his house every year.
Beer Brewing Competition
Members of the Delaware Valley Section will enter a beer brewing competition hosted by the AIChE organization. Accompanied by Ted Heron and Giselle Johnston, Paul Yanisko hosted the homebrewing activities at his home where they brewed an oatmeal stout style beer. In addition to entering into the “dark and malty” category, they will also enter into the optional “seasonal” category using spices and additional hops to brew a portion of the main batch. The competition will take place at the Annual Meeting in Minneapolis on October 29th where judges will sample the homebrews and DVS team member Peter Schwalbenberg will represent the team in the poster competition. Good luck to our section in the competition!
