On behalf of my colleagues, I wish to convey our sincere condolences. Dr. Doetsch was a highly accomplished researcher, beloved colleague and teacher who mentored many generations of students over the course of his long and illustrious career. He truly made a difference.

I just got back from a Caribbean cruise and saw the obituary in the Post. I have many fond memories of my years as one of Ray's graduate students. I learned so much from him and my Ph.D. was used for many subsequent years at the EPA biopesticide office until my retirement a few years ago. Thank you, Ray.
