Stefan Westerhoff, a professor in the physics department at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, passed away on Sunday, August 5, 2018, after a long illness. He was 50.

Stefan’s colleagues and friends are deeply saddened by his passing and will remember him for his sharp mind, a witty sense of humor, his comforting voice and presence, and an amiable, generous, and straightforward personality. His legacy as a mentor leaves behind a cohort of scientists, not only in the IceCube and HAWC collaborations but also in other astronomy and astrophysics communities he was once a member of.

A memorial service for Stefan Westerhoff will be held on August 25 in Madison.  It will be from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the Alumni Lounge in the Pyle Center, 702 Langdon Street.
