William LeMessurier, who was an expert in the structure of high-rises, who detected a serious problem in the structure of the 59-story Citicorp headquarters tower and lead the repair effort, who said that engineers are "supposed to be self-sacrificing and look beyond the interests of yourself and your client to society as a whole," died on June 14, at the age of 81, from complications in surgery.

May he rest in peace.
