In memoriam: Rick St. Denis

Rick St. Denis

University of Glasgow professor and Fermilab user Rick St. Denis passed away on Feb. 15 after a six-month battle with cancer.

St. Denis completed his graduate work on the first run of CDF at Fermilab. He then moved to ALEPH and was involved in the early designs of the toroidal muon system for ATLAS. He returned to CDF to work on Higgs searches and more recently became deeply involved in the top-Higgs analysis at ATLAS.

The family of St. Denis will hold a small, private funeral on Feb. 21. They request that donations in St. Denis’ memory be made to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
