Erich Vogt's passion for teaching is well known; he taught first-year physics for decades at UBC. He made learning physics fun and entertaining. Although he is a giant in the Canadian physics community, young students knew him as an approachable and caring professor. More importantly, he inspired his students to become infatuated with physics. In this talk, I will describe experiences from those who interacted with him in first-year physics classes.
