[env-trinity] Remembering Serge Birk

I worked in Serge in a number of fora.  Our employers have had an often adversarial relationship that often affected our public interchanges. I remember Serge best from Trinity meetings in Weaverville that were sometimes followed with beer at La Grange.

Serge was clearly a smart guy and perhaps most importantly an independent thinker. We need more like him who are willing to challenge established paradigms.

He was serious when he needed to be and fun the rest of the time. I will miss him.

For those who may be unaware, Serge had a side business raising Australian Redclaw Crayfish. See attached (if this server allows attachments).

Trinity River Enthusiasts-

Serge Burke wore many hats over the course of his career and was a strong advocate for restoring the Trinity River fishery throughout them all. He will be missed.

To everyone in Reclamation who had the pleasure of knowing or working with Serge Birk,

Please take a moment to remember our friend and/or coworker who passed away peacefully this am from cancer.

Those who knew and worked with Serge know how passionate and dedicated he was to our environmental and fisheries resources, friends, and family.

A few of Serge's accomplishments include the completion of the Keswick Dam Stilling Basin notch project for fish passage, funding restoration work at Battle Creek, and the first Biological Assessment for coho at KBAO.

We will all miss him greatly.
