I’m saddened to learn that Randy Pausch passed away yesterday.

In August 2006, Randy was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A year later he learnt it had spread and was given between 3 – 6 months to live. Shortly thereafter, he gave his last ever lecture. This lecture is one of the most beautiful, brilliant and inspiring lectures i’ve ever seen. It’s since received over 5 million viewings worldwide and Randy even managed to dictate a book in his final months.

You can watch the final lecture here (but you should set aside an hour in advance).

Randy passed away knowing that his success in life will long-outlast him. In addition to three children, Randy also created Alice, a 3D simulator that will help thousands of students develop their gaming and 3D reality skills. He pushed and led his students to great things, and they loved him for it.

Aside from the messages in the video, there’s a lot to learn from Randy Pausch. Great people naturally gain a following. Randy inspired everyone around him. He will no doubt be an inspiration to his three children when they watch lecture many years from now. He was certainly an inspiration to the students that turned out in their hundreds and gave him a standing ovation, and he is an inspiration to over 5 million people who have since watched the video.

He will be missed.
