Marco A. Satyro, 54, died on Sept. 8, 2016, in College Station, Texas.
“Marco’s passion for science and chemical engineering was unsurpassed. He never walked away from a challenge and could not leave a problem unresolved. His enthusiasm was contagious and his ability to express his ideas using unconventional methods was envied by many. Some of his professional colleagues have referred to him as a giant at his craft, a soldier for science and technology, a genius in the making. Marco was a wonderful father and husband, a caring friend, and an admired, compassionate teacher. He was founder of VMG Inc., a professor at the University of Calgary and Clarkson University, and a mentor to many young minds.”—Malu Satyro, wife
