  1. I will miss my good friend Steve Holbrook. He was smart, had a good sense of humor, loved life and his work at LBNL. He was kind to all, had a golden smile and personality, and he was an inspiration to all who knew him. My condolences to Libby, Bryan and family. He will be missed.

  2. So sad to hear this news. I had the pleasure of knowing the Holbrooks when we were in B64. Such a nice couple.
