Bob Pease killed in car crash

Bob Pease, the analog design engineer who taught many of us the really important parts of analog circuit design, was killed in a one-car accident on Saturday. Done too soon.

Bob was a colorful personality. He was 100% nerdy engineer and yet at the same time he did not fit the nerdy engineer stereotype at all. He was a master teacher and a master showman. His knowledge - no, his wisdom - was matched only by his charisma and his ebullience.

Those who met him in person were very lucky people. Those who knew him as a friend and colleague were even luckier. The rest of us are just lucky to have read his words.

Here's the obituary in EDN.
