Evarist Giné Memorial: Sunday, September 27, 1–3pm

The following note is shared on behalf of the daughters of our late colleague, Professor Evarist Giné-Masdéau, who passed away on March 13, 2015.


We are very saddened by the passing of our father, Evarist Giné on March 13, 2015. Evarist was a kind and generous dad, a devoted grandfather, an accomplished mathematician, and loving husband of Rosalind Eastaway, and we miss him very much.

On September 27, 2015, from 1 – 3 pm, we will hold a memorial in his honor at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT. The memorial will be open to the public, and will take place in Konover Auditorium on the Storrs campus.

We would like to invite friends and colleagues to share their memories of Evarist and speak on his life. We understand that because of distance, some of you may be unable to attend but may still want to share memories of our dad with his family, friends and colleagues. We would be happy to read these on your behalf at his memorial. If you would like to speak at this event or send a written message to be read, please email Roser Giné.

We hope to see you there,
