Friend and colleague Donald M. Figert passed away on January 30, 2002

Don was formerly with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and provided more than twenty-five years service in the ATF's Nonbeverage Product Laboratory and the Product Compliance Branch. 

He was a recipient of the ATF's Distinguished Service Award, a joint-recipient of the ATF's Hammer Award, and was a member of the six-member expert panel at the 1995 IFT technical program "The Use of Flavors in Alcoholic Beverages: An Integrated View" in Anaheim, CA.

Upon retiring from the ATF Don formed his consulting company BAFF, Inc. (Beverage Alcohol Formulas Flavor Inc.) and provided expert consulting services for product development, formulation, and labeling for domestic and imported wine, beer, malt beverages, and alcoholic beverages. 

Many services for client projects, lectures, and seminars were frequently provided through a joint collaboration between Don and myself.
