Bob Pease Killed in Car Crash

It was about 11:55 pm on Father's Day when I sat down at my computer to write my editorial for our July issue. I needed to retrieve a research report from my stack of emails, so I logged into Microsoft Outlook. I skimmed over the weekend emails and stopped dead at one that said, "Bob Pease Killed in Car Crash." My first reaction was, "this must be some kind of joke." But when I saw the sender, Paul Rako of EDN, I knew it must be true. Horrible but true. The message in part said, "Bob Pease was killed when his car left the road as he drove from Jim Williams' memorial service yesterday." In an awful twist of fate, two of the great legends of analog engineering have passed in the same week.
