Rémi started working at CERN just over 5 years ago, as a Computing Infrastructure Engineer in the Beams Controls group. With his friendly attitude and engineering talent, he quickly made a very positive impression and went on to contribute to the support and development of mission critical and strategic aspects of the Controls for CERN's particle accelerator complex. He forged many positive and meaningful collaborations with hundreds of colleagues from across CERN.
Aside from work, Rémi developed strong friendships and embarked on many activities, including aviation, stand-up paddle, and running. He recently completed a "Mud Day" run with his CERN friends, and was preparing for the Geneva half-marathon in May.
Rémi enjoyed his work and loved being part of the BE-CSS-ISA team and the BE-CSS group. These sentiments were strongly reciprocated by everyone that Rémi came into contact with at CERN. Rémi was a beautiful person and an outstanding engineer. He has gone too soon and we will always miss him.
Rémi would not want us to be sad at his passing, so we should remember all of the good moments and his positive contributions towards CERN's mission. Looking forward, BE-CSS will build on the solid technical foundations that Rémi laid out for the future of Controls infrastructure, and in doing so, continue to honor his hard work and dedication.
Thank you for everything, Rémi, and rest in peace.
His friends and colleagues
