We mourn the loss of our colleague Joachim R. Frick. He died on the 16th of December 2011 at the age of 49.
Joachim R. Frick was one of the directors of the internationally renowned Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) study. At the peak of his career, Joachim fell victim to an extremely virulent form of cancer. He fought bravely and valiantly and in the end found peace. He will be remembered as a warmhearted and faithful friend; a valued, dedicated, and extremely productive colleague; and an internationally recognized pioneer of comparative panel analysis. We will honor his memory and will remain forever grateful for his more than twenty years of dedication to the SOEP study. He will be greatly missed.
