EE Instructional Labs Manager Keith Gaul died due to a massive heart attack on Aug. 5, 2014. The attack occurred four days into his backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevadas, and despite CPR and a flown-in medical team, Gaul passed away.
He began working at Stanford in 1988 and had been a part of the electrical engineering (EE) community since 2000.
"His contribution to the department will be felt for a long time to come," wrote Department Chair Abbas El Gamal in an email to the EE community. "The loss of a good friend will be felt for much longer."
