understanding very early on that I could
never keep up with this man, because I
was in the presence of a giant. He was
honored and respected by his peers,
and I know of very few others who have
been as prolific, as productive, and as
passionate as was Dr.  El-Hawary. His

he engineering community suffered a tremendous loss upon
receiving the sad news of the
passing of Prof. Mohamed "Mo" ElHawary, the founding editor-in-chief
(EIC) of IEEE Systems, Man, and
Cybernetics Magazine, IEEE Systems,
Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMCS)
Board of Governors (BoG) member-atlarge, and all-around long-time IEEE
volunteer. For those of us who knew
him as a volunteer for the IEEE, he
was always a pleasure to be around
but also quite a hard worker when it
came to scholarly and professional service to our profession. Moreover, Mo
was a consummate family man.
Among his other areas of service
to the IEEE SMCS, Mo served as the
EIC of the Society's eNewsletter from
2012 to 2015 and twice as general chair
of the IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (the IEEE SMC) when held in
Canada-1984 in Halifax and 2007 in

see farther than him. I did everything
that I could do to catch up to him, let
alone stand on his shoulders."
Dr. El-Hawary was a great lover of
animals, classical music, politics, traveling, and taking selfies. He was also
a devoted father, grandfather, brother,

and friend. He especially enjoyed being with family and friends and making them all laugh and smile in Canada
and in travels around the world. He enjoyed spending as much time as possible with Ferial, the love of his life, with
whom he has shared adventures in exotic locations all around the world.
