Wayne Nils Tobiasson was born on April 1, 1939 and passed away from lung cancer on August 14, 2020. He studied civil engineering at Northeastern University (BSCE, 1961) and Dartmouth College’s Thayer School (MEng, 1974). He was a valued supporter of IIBEC since its beginnings. In return, coupled with his roofing research contributions, he was named an honorary member in 1995. Tobiasson retired from a 39-year career working at the US Army Corps of Engineers: Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in 1997. In the words of IIBEC Director of Technical Services Walt Rossiter, “His contributions to the roofing community, particularly moisture movement through roof systems and its effect on them, were unmatched.” Memories may be shared at: https://www.mykeeper.com/profile/WayneTobiasson/.
