In Memoriam: Cliff Roudabusch

February 22, 2012

D. Clifford Roudabusch, or Cliff as we all knew him, passed away February 20, 2012 shortly before noon. Cliff was a long time employee of Electrical and Computer Engineering, starting in the department as front desk support in 1997 and moving up over the years into accounting. Cliff is survived by his wife and two children. Our feelings of sympathy go to his family, friends, and colleagues.

The family will hold a memorial service for Cliff this Friday, February 24, 2012 in the Alumni Chapel from 3 to 5 p.m. His wife Cheryl Roudabusch has requested that people not wear black at the funeral service.

Please join me in respectful celebration of Cliff’s many years with the School. He will be missed.
