I worked at NSC in the 80's as technician and I remember towards the end of the year Bob would display a handwritten list of all the dead cars he would pass on his commute. He included the year make and model on most cars. Nobody quite figured out how he got all that info by just a quick pass of a stranded car. How about Bob's filing system; I recall in an answer to my question, Bob shuffled between the stacks of paper in his cubicle, counted over 3 piles, fingered down about halfway of a 5 foot high stack, hesitated for a second and then plucked the paper of interest. How did he do that? In my copy of "Troubleshooting Analog Circuits" Bob wrote, "Mike, may all your troubles be Middle-sized, so you can find them! RAP" RIP Bob. Mike Mottola

WOW, this saddens me, One little anetdote. a few years ago, I emailed bob a question and a few thoughts. amazingly, he replied and we had a few emails back and forth for a few weeks. I felt humbled that such a man would spend time and seem to enjoy talking to a low-level me. BOB, we will miss you.

I remember when I was studying I read some of Bob Pease's columns. Didn't catch much but I knew him since. I'm impressed with this tragedy. RIP Bob.

"sadly, no seat belts" "How many times to they tell you to click it?" He was driving a '69 VW Beetle! How would seat belts help? He was so proud of driving an unsafe car. And of driving unsafely: "whats all this driving one-handed stuff". How ironic that he had written about how not to drive into an accident. I'm gonna miss him! A lot! But really: a 69 Beetle?

I never had the honor of meeting either Bob Pease or Jim Williams, but I knew them by reputation. It's a tremendous loss. I can't wrap my mind around the tragic irony that Pease died on the way home a memorial service for Williams. It is like some sort of sick, twisted cosmic joke. May they both rest in peace. The world would not have been the same if not for their contributions.
