You earned your bachelor’s degree in aeronautics from MIT; and a master’s in biomedical engineering from Purdue a year later. You decided to become a doctor, so you went off to Vanderbilt School of Medicine. You did some interesting research, made some contributions to the field of epidemiology, and even won some awards. Later in your career, you went to work for The Journal of the American Medical Association, and even a Chicago TV station as an on-camera medical expert.

You leave behind two parents, three siblings, two children, and one wife - a woman who describes you as "a Renaissance man."

And this is the headline the NYTimes puts over your obituary?
