The foundation of any great school is determined not by the buildings it contains but by the people that work inside. One of the people who made EECS what it is today died on Thursday, August 14th, 2003 at the age of 71. Ken served with the department for 40 years, starting first at the Electron Physics Lab in the late 1950s and retiring as a Technical Supervisor in 1997. Ken was also a skilled machinist, a role model and mentor to hundreds of students, and the person everyone in EECS sought after to just get things done right.
