Alexander (Sasha) Gordon, died in Chicago on May 13, 2019, after a long illness. Sasha was a brilliant mathematician, author of a number of beautiful and original results in diverse fields of spectral theory and other areas of analysis. His insights were behind some of the foundations of almost periodic operators as well as the theme of genericity of singular continuous spectrum developed by B. Simon and collaborators. Born in Kharkov, Ukraine, on May 10, 1947, Sasha has had an unusual path in mathematics. At the time of his death, he was an associate professor of mathematics at UNCC. His life story can be viewed as a triumph of human and mathematical spirit over the circumstances.
