Professor Richard Yamamoto died on October 16th. The MIT news office has a brief article here and a memorial site can be found here. I suggest that those from MIT read the farewell comments from family and friends.
Of all the people I knew as an undergraduate, I learned the most from Yamamoto. I admired him most for his calm, almost nonchalant demeanor in dealing with any problem (or Junior Lab student). He was genuinely curious about the world, and all of his students benefited from this.
Goodbye RKY. I miss you.
