    My sincere condolences to the Powrie family. I first met Dr. Powrie as an undergraduate in Food Science the year he started as head of the department. Through his encouragement and mentorship I went on to finish my doctorate in 1973, In the years following, when facing difficulties, I remember those compassionate and directive chats we had that eased my way through graduate school. I listened to his words as I still do today to ease my way. Bill Has many friends and I was lucky to be one of them. He will be missed very much.
