Randy Pausch, the professor whose “last lecture” we had posted about earlier this year, passed away Friday, at his home in Chesapeake, Va at the age of 47. He spoke eloquently about his mortality, the meaning of his life, what legacy he wanted to leave behind. Battling with pancreatic cancer, he lived five months longer than the six months doctors gave him.
May he rest in peace; a Carnegie Mellon campus memorial service is being planned with details to be announced at a later date. In the meanwhile, Tributes.com has created a memorial page for those who have been touched by Randy's story and would like to learn more about his inspirational journey.
