I was sorry to hear the news about the loss of Dr Treblow z''l. Over the last couple of years I had the opportunity to speak and chat with him on a number of community and jewish issues. He was a friend of Israel and a true ohev yisroel .It will be not the same to not have his smart insights and sayings , when we would meet up in various venues in our area. Hamakom to his wide Sybil , and the entire mishpachah and family. Yours...M M Milch

Mordecai will be remembered fondly by his many friends at the American Chemical Society (ACS). He was very active in ACS for many years, serving on many committees and our Board of Directors. Many of us traveled to Pittsburgh to give talks to his local section at his request. It was hard to say no to someone so passionate and committed to advancing science and improving people's lives. We miss him and send our condolences to his family on their loss.

When I think of Mordecai it brings a smile to my face. He was so dedicated to and worked so hard with the ACS Energy Technology Group. He recently passed the reins off after working with it for so long. And it took two people to fill his shoes. I'm glad I got to give him a hug and thank him. He will be greatly missed and will be remembered for a long time to come. My deepest sympathy to Sibyl and his children and their spouses. And to his grandchildren, my deepest sympathy also. Your grandfather will have a lasting impression on many, many people. May God bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand.
