Bob Pease, Jim Williams, both gone.

Both fellows were very skilled analog design engineers, and it's likely that you've used something designed by both of them.

Jim Williams died of a massive stroke, and Bob died due to an auto accident coming home from Jim's funeral.

I'll miss both.

Re: Bob Pease

Sad news indeed. The National Audio Design handbook Bob wrote in the early 1970s was my bible for a long time and I built several of the designs in that book. I was privileged to be able to have a conversation with Bob at a DSP conference in San Jose in 1995. One of the sharpest minds I have ever encountered.
