I will miss the conversations that I had with Rabin after work. He was a very knowledgeable person who as well as sharing his thoughts was a good listener. Rabin’s passing will be a great loss to the group and everyone who knew him. Phil Rogers

Rabin joined SCEE not long after myself and although I did not see him on a daily basis, when I did see him he always seemed to have a cap on his head and a smile on his face. It was clear from the few times I spoke with Rabin that he was a very intelligent, genuine person. He will be sorely missed by everybody whose lives he touched during his short time here. . David Jeston

Rabin was always the guy I would want to go to first when I was stuck with a problem. He was never too busy to help and would go to any lengths to help me. That is the kind of guy he was. Rick Forster
In the year that I have worked with Rabin I can honestly say that I have met no one else as conscientious and selfless. What ever the need Rabin has always been the first to offer help. Ever friendly, caring and keen to help. We have lost not just a brilliant intellect, but an impassioned colleague and a good friend. . . . Mike Dean
Rabin, you will be missed.
Rabin seemed so full of life and energy – quietly. He was always there, whatever the occasion. He was a great friend and a great co-worker. I feel sorry for our loss. Sergio Moreiru
I considered Rabin to be both a colleague and a friend, and I am shocked by his loss. Rabin always had something amusing or insightful to add to any conversation – no matter what the subject.

Rabin was a genuinely, kind, helpful, thoughtful person. His loss was a shock to all of us. I used to join him for lunch or for a drink on occasion. He was well liked by everyone he worked with. In the industry he worked in I think he is one of the most talented, respected persons there is. He will be greatly missed. Mark Corydon
I knew Rabin for about a year and during that time enjoyed many a conversation with him at lunch or over a quiet drink. His calm demeanour and insightful mind was inspiring to all those who met him – a truly great talent.
Though our parts
never quite crossed, Rabin was known to me – to all of us – for his
technological brilliance and remarkable humanity; qualities both for which he
shall ever be remembered. Sham
Having known Rabin for 10 years my sense of loss is hard to measure. During my 8 years working at Criterion, whenever a really tough technical problem came up we’d usually decide – “that’s one for Rabin” . He always seemed to tackle the hard stuff with ease and still find time for a drink in the pub after work. A truly great man! You will be missed my friend. Sean Turner
Rabin always struck me as hugely intelligent and very enthusiastic about technology which made him fascinating to talk to. I always looked forward to seeing what ‘cool’ thing he was working on as I passed his desk surrounded by exotic technology.
I also valued Rabin
as a friend and spent many hours with him down the pub in
I never met Rabin, but I wish I had. The comments of his colleagues and friends paint a picture of a very special person – kind, thoughtful, helpful and very clever indeed. This is a very great loss for us all. Nancy Gatehouse
I never got a chance to know Rabin very well, but in our Japanese classes he was always a quiet but friendly person, easy to get along with, and obviously knew his work very well. It is sad to think that we won’t see him around here any more – he will certainly be missed at Sony. Chris Bevan
I had known Rabin for 9 years both at Criterion and, later, at SCEE. We enjoyed many a BBQ and pint together discussing the relative merits of Japanese and Italian sports cars. I am shocked and deeply saddened by his loss. Jamie Macdonald
Rabin was a lovely and very helpful person. Like everyone I am shocked and deeply saddened by what has happened. Richard Lee
Rabin was a kind and helpful person – we will really miss him. Nicolas Serres
