Upon returning from a trip, I was greatly saddened to learn of Adel's untimely death. His vision and contributions to postharvest biology were monumental and will be remembered for many years and several generations. He was the Dept. Chair who hired me to the Dept. of Pomology, so I am ever grateful for his support and friendship. Mary and I extend our condlolences to Aileen, children and grandchildren

I was so saddened to learn of Adel's sudden death. He was great mentor on postharvest biology and technology in the world. I learn a lot from his vision and contributions although we met twice at international symposium in Turkey and Malaysia. My team members and me extend our condlolences to his family from remote Northwest of China.

I first met Adel when he enrolled at UCD. I was on the faculty of the Department of Vegetable Crops, associated with the Post harvest Group, working in the Louis Mann Post Harvest Laboratory. Adel joined and undertook research with Dr. Leonard Morris. His notable performance as a student, researcher and administrator will be remembered by all who knew him. I truly regret his loss, especially as I remember his warm association with Aileen and their family.

I was saddened to learn of Adel's loss. He was the one of the top scientist in the world. From California, the lights of his knowledge reached us like all our colleques everywhere in the world. He combined deeply scientific knowledge and its practical use and education. He was perfect model of new scientists with all aspects of him. Postharvest science and sector are orphan anymore.

Saddened to hear of Adel Kadar's death. He was one of few inspirational teachers, a warm friendly engaging personality. He certainly had an impact on my professional life in the area of postharvest handling science and technologies, and he had a practical research portfolio for support.

I have no words to express my sad feelings on hearing this news. I had the opportunity of learning Post Harvest from Mr Adel Kader way back in 1993 and 1994. I was completely new to the Fresh Produce business and it was during my course at UC Davis that I really could generate that energy and inspiration to go ahead in fresh grapes business. I also had the great opportunity of meeting Mr Kader and Ms Lise in Mumbai (Bombay) couple of years ago.  
I sincerely pray that this noble soul rest in peace and my personal condolences to his family.  
This is indeed a very big loss for all of us.
