  5. With deepest sympathy to the family of Keith Lemley. I will remember him as a bright, shining star in the Computer Services Division at NASA GRC. He always had a kind word for everyone and we enjoyed talking with him every morning at the coffee pot in the break room. His smile was infectious and I’m glad I had a chance to get to know Keith at NASA back in the 70s.

    Linda (Schuller) Little and Mark Little
