Just wanted to express my condolences to Herbs family on his passing. I am a former graduate student of “Dr. Ohm” as we called him and can’t begin to express how much postive impact he had on my life and career. I have many fond memories working in the greenhouse and fields in his wheat and oat breeding programs. He definitely had a deep desire to see his students learn and succeed, and so much of what he taught us has been instrumental in continuing to achieve crop improvement around the world.

I noticed Herb's obituary in the local paper this morning and just want to express my condolences to his family. My father, Roger Ratcliffe, worked for the USDA but on the Purdue campus, and their paths crossed because of their work. I believe they worked in the same building. I know that my father thought very highly of Herb, professionally and personally.
