Michael Brian Lake, 64, passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 26 following a hit-and-run bicycle accident on Jan. 13 in Berkeley.

Michael will be remembered for his great sense of humor, a contagious laugh and a gentle heart.

His last profession was as a parking controller with LAZ Parking and UC Berkeley, where he helped clients and employees at the School of Optometry, UC Berkeley with a smile each day. Mike had worked there for 18 years, and had even worked the day of his tragic accident. He loved to ride his bike and a day rarely passed when he wasn’t on it.

Read Michael’s full obituary, which includes details of his memorial, in Berkeley’s Obituaries section, and feel free to share your memories there in the Comments section. … Continue reading »

In Memoriam: W. Norton Grubb, Cal Emeritus Professor

W. Norton Grubb, the David Pierpont Gardner Professor in Higher Education, Emeritus at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education, died Jan. 15, 2015 in Taipei. He was on vacation with his wife of 46 years, Rikki Grubb, when he died peacefully in his sleep. He had celebrated his 67th birthday while on the trip.

Grubb was a prolific scholar who taught at UC Berkeley for 25 years. He was also passionate about travel, hiking, and the performing arts. He delighted (and sometimes horrified) his family with culinary experiments. His vast collection of Marimekko shirts was perhaps the most visible extension of his colorful personality.

Read Grubb’s full obituary in Berkeleyside’s Obituaries section, and leave your messages of condolences and memories in the Comments there. … Continue reading »
