Whilst attending the latest ION GNSS+ conference I had the confirmation that Prof. Kai Borre disappeared this Summer. He has been a very important reference to me, especially in the early stages of my career. I am sure many other radio-navigation, geodesy and DSP engineers will convene with me. I knew him pretty well and I could not find anywhere an epitaph, so I today feel compelled to my leave my tribute to him here and hope others will intimately share my feeling.
Rest in peace Kai. My gratitude, for inspiring me until your very last moment.
