Ira was a kind and gentle person. Kepler's was never the same after he retired.

Condolences to his loved ones.

I worked at SRI from 1956 - 1994. On our lunch hour we would drift over to Kepler's, where Ira would be working. Often Joan Baez would be there, strumming her guitar and singing. Ira was a good guy and he and Joan accomplished a lot to bring peace to the world. We will miss him.
