A tribute to Hilmar Willi Duerbeck

C. Sterken

This eulogy was written in memory of Hilmar W. Duerbeck, who died suddenly and unexpectedly on Thursday the 5th of January 2012, at the age of 63. This writing is not a classical obituary, but is a set of recollections about the most wonderful and very special person that Hilmar was, about his life, and about the way we have worked together. This document is based on archived letters, emails and memories of conversations and discussions, and also includes the personal webpage that he designed and maintained at the University of Brussels.
