Allan Guida


Allan led a truly fascinating life, fueled by his love of mathematics and his passion for engineering.  The complexities of things unseen were a challenge to Allan - to understand and reimagine the possibilities of technology, science and the human condition.  His easy laugh and sharp humor were the perfect balance to his grounded sense of purpose, both in his work and his place in the greater world.

His legacy will live on through his family, his colleagues and his friends, and he will be forever remembered and missed.
