Dear respected KSEA colleagues,
I bring this news with a profound sadness. One of the founding members and the second president of KSEA, professor Kiuck Lee, has passed away Tuesday, June 10, 2014. Professor Lee’s passing is a tremendous loss for the entire KSEA community. He was a member of the first graduating class of Seoul National University, College of Arts and Sciences, and was one of the first three recipients of a Ph.D. in physics at Florida State University. As the first doctor of modern physics in Korea, he spent his young professional career representing Korea at various international meetings, including President Eisenhower’s Atoms For Peace. As a physics professor at the Marquette University, he contributed significantly to the establishments and advancement of many premier scientists and engineers organizations in America.
Professor Lee had not only been a leader in new frontiers but also been a lighthouse to all of us who followed his footsteps. While in a better place, professor Lee will be with us forever, leading us and guiding us to be like him. His care and generosity will continue igniting the future generations of him.
For those of you who is closer to come to his funeral, I attach below the funeral arrangement and other information.
