Bob was a great man. Met him in a lecture more than a decade ago. Traded emails with him once. Loved his column. Have both his signed books Troubleshooting and driving. It be nice if "Babes with Axes" could make a tribute to him. He will surely be missed, I wish the best to his family.

I wrote Bob an email about six years ago suggesting that he get a modern car with air bags and anti-lock brakes (at least for regular commuting). He answered that he had rented a Chevy Cobalt once while traveling and found the steering way too sloppy. He said "I would rather avoid and accident than survive one". The 1969 beetle had good road feel but really was not a safe car by today's standards.

I am shocked to hear of Bob's demise. While I mever met him, it's to me like losing a good friend and fellow engineer. I followed every one of his articles even though I am 77 yrs. old and retired from active engineering for over 23 years.

I liked Bob's columns in Electronic Design. He's such a great and lovable writer. Its so sad. He'll surely be missed.

I just come in and read this sad news. I am sorry to hear that. I am not in a field of Analog world any more. BTW, while I was, his insight and experience from column and book was a key to problem. He will be missed from me too. Regards to him.

I dont see how the National move to TI could end the legacy. It would only enhance and bring together two cultures.

Jim Williams gone. Bob Pease -aka RAP- gone. Nat Semi sold to Texas Instruments. Is this the end of a chapter? How will the story continue?

Oh my God! This is so tragic. One guru after another. The way incident took place I guess Bob was very depressed on Jim's passing away. Not wearing seat belt, driving fast on curvy areas at that age shows he was done with life and felt he would get the peace in that way. May his soul rests in peace. He and Jim would always be remembered very well by all engineering enthusiasts.

I just got back from a week in the back country with Boy Scouts and found the note about Bob's passing in my email in-box. While I never had the good fortune to meet him in person, we carried on several extended email conversations over the years, both about electronics (although I'm a digital guy, not analog) and about our other loves of hiking, trekking and the mountains. I'm truly saddened, feeling like I've lost a good friend. Bob's sharp wit and willingness to share his expertise will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family. Farewell, and may we meet again in that great lab in the sky...
