Sad to loose agood man and a personal friend.
I worked with Tayfur in the early stages of simulation developemnt in early 1980 when Arena was in baby stage. We worked together when I was still the VP at Soros Associates and we did the Brazilian and Australian projects. We travelled together to the Austalian iron ore mines. He is referrencing oneof the ATZConsultant projects at Mineracao Rio de Norte. This gave him the practical side of simulating the real life and after construction to see the results.

I've just sent a Christmas message to Tayfur and the server replied adress unknown. I google its name and discovered this sad news. Why I did'nt call him in March when I was in NYC? It was always a big pleasure to be with this great professor Tayfur.
My condolences to his wife and daughters.

I was deeply saddened by the untimely loss of our dear friend and colleague Tayfur Altiok. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the First Int. Workshop on ‘Queueing Networks with Blocking (QNB)’, Raleigh, USA, May 29-21, 1988, for which he and Harry Perros acted co-chairs. Consequently, we kept in touch over the years and I met him again at the third QNB event in Ilkley, UK, 6-7 July 1995. He was an excellent research professor as well as a cordial and kind human being with very good sense of humour. Let his memory be everlasting, giving strength and inspiration to his family, friends, colleagues and students worldwide.

I first met Professor Altiok in 2007 and immediately recognized in him a truly remarkable joy for learning, for life and for friendship. I consider myself lucky to have met him. The world is a poorer place for his leaving. He will be missed.

Was my professor in the mid 1980's when he first came to Rutgers. I graduated in 1985. Fond memories of his classes. I am truly sorry.

I never had Professor Altiok. I actually never even knew his full name. I would run into him all the time after my class in the DSV and he was so nice and courteous. He loved to talk and it was a joy seeing him. RIP Professor Tayfur Altiok.
