Charlie Coe passed away this morning. Charlie had retired before I arrived at NC State, but he was always in his office working and he'd come by to share a smile. It's sad news for the @abfm_aspa and @ASPANational communities.

Heads up to @abfm_aspa, @aaahq, and academics interested in financial management generally: GASB is seeking an auditor rather than an academic to replace Michael Granof.
