Ric Soulis, a longtime Waterloo civil and environmental engineering professor, died June 21 after a brief illness.
Born in Toronto in 1949, Ric was raised in Kitchener where he attended Eastwood Collegiate Institute. He received his BASc in civil engineering in 1972 from the University of Waterloo and then attended Memorial University of Newfoundland.
He spent 10 years working in industry before he returned to the University of Waterloo where he completed his doctorate in civil engineering in 1988. That same year, he began a career teaching and researching hydrology and related fields. Ric recently celebrated his 30th anniversary of working at the University. His family says he had no intention of retiring until “he achieved specific teaching, research, and service goals.”
