In memoriam T. S. Michael

T.   S. (Scott) Michael Jan. 15, 1960 -Nov. 22, 2016 Passed away peacefully at home, following a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He leaves behind his mother, Anita Studen, brother Steven Michael, niece Savannah Michael and step-father Ronald Studen. Also step-sister Candace Cradeur, step-brother Peter Studen, and extended family. His father, Robert Michael, predeceased him in 2004. Christened Scott Michael at birth, he changed his name years later to T. S. Michael. T.S. grew up in Novato where he attended public schools, soon developing a life-long passion for mathematics. Following graduation from Novato High school, he majored in math at Cal Tech, where he graduated with honors in 1983. Five years later, he earned his doctorate degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. T. S. discovered that he especially loved teaching math, and eventually spent 26 very happy and satisfying years as an Associate Math Professor at the Unite
