Friends,

It's been a month already. Nevertheless, I feel like I'm obligated to notify this to our alumni members.

Hate to inform you of the very disturbing news that our beloved friend, Kim Jaewook ('69), passed away unexpectedly on 6/10/12 (Sun). In the midst of  the overwhelming grief, friends and relatives gethered together to celebrate his life on his memorial service day, 6/24/12 (Sun), at his Oakland, CA residence.

He was a devoted family man, a leader in the medical school, a dedicated physician and a mountain lover. He traveled odd places in the world from Himalayas to Timbuktu. He did all that. He lived a full and glorious life. His thoughts were always deep and touching. His words led our way to dignity. We had many fond memories together. We shared common interest in our lives. As terrible as it is, he has been suffering from a rare neurological disorder called Multisystem Atrophy (MSA) for a few years with rapid exacerbation.

Just remembered part of the song lyrics, Vincent (Starry, Starry Night), written for Vincent van Gogh:


But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry, night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, Vincent (Jaewook),
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you.


After all, Jaewook's memory will always remain deep in our hearts.

With deepest sympathy and best wishes for his remaining family, Sunhee, David and Beth.

William (Byungil) Ahnn ('69)
