Obituary: Ken Ozawa

Ken Ozawa and wife“It is with great sadness I learned that longtime physics professor at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and friend of AAPT, Ken Ozawa, passed away March, 4, 2009. Ken worked very hard to help bring the Northern and Southern California Sections of AAPT together by hosting meetings at Cal Poly, many of which were very memorable. The national AAPT even hosted a summer meeting at Cal Poly once. He served not only as an officer of the Southern CA Section of AAPT, he also was the national President of AAPT. He was a very hard working and dedicated fellow and will be missed by all us in AAPT.”

— Paul Robinson, NCN AAPT

One thought on “Obituary: Ken Ozawa”

  1. It has been just over 3 months since my dad passed. I am still in disbelief that he is gone. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about him and miss him. But his memories, strength, pride, and love keep me and our family bound tightly. Thank you for acknowledging him. He LOVED his work, fellow physics friends, and students tremendously. You made every day of his life full and worth living to the fullest…
