Malcolm Stack, Cheif Executive of Bell Laboratories died on Sunday 16th April. The following statement was issued by the Stack family:
To all who knew him, Malcolm Stack was a man who was happiest On Course. Whether he was on a golf course, a cross country course, or off somewhere charting his own course, he was a man on a mission, and he rarely stopped until he reached his goals.
As many of you know, Malcolm has been battling lung cancer for the past six months. Although he put up a valiant fight, he recently lost that battle and is now resting peacefully.
Malcolm was a private man who preferred not to receive guests other than his family toward the end of his illness. However, he lived a life so big, so full, that we’d like to share our memories with you. We hope you will remember Malcolm as we will … as a force of nature, as a man who never said never or uttered the word “impossible.”
