This is sad; although we were neighbors of a sort in St. Louis, I only met the man once but I've talked with him and corresponded with him. He still bore that title of Professor Emeritus from Seminex -- Concordia Lutheran Seminary in Exile. What a monument he has left behind in BDAG, a classic aere perennius even if it should ever be surpassed.
