In Memoriam: Lucas Eustaquio Gomes da Silva (August 27th 1982 - April 24th, 2016)

Today myself and the rest of the Niddel team were devastated to learn that our dear friend Lucas Eustaquio Gomes da Silva, our Senior Data Scientist since August 2013, has passed away after a brave battle against an aggressive form of cancer.

Our deepest condolences to his family, which are in our thoughts in this moment of pain and mourning. The funeral service will be held in Belo Horizonte tomorrow, April 25th, at 10am BRT.

Lucas was a fun, brilliant, confident and hard-working man. We are thankful for the time we had to work with and learn from him, and are truly saddened by how tragically short that time was. Today the world loses an amazing human being, and one of its most talented data scientists, which was respected and cherished by his colleagues and peers.

Rest in peace, Lucas. You will be missed. We will do our best to ensure your work lives on - that the dream you shared with us will be realized, whatever the odds.
