Inspirational Randy Pausch

 - Jul 25, 2008
Inspirational Randy Pausch, the 'Last Lecture' professor, passed away today. Randy was a Carnegie Mellon professor who created a legacy tour based on the importance of following your childhood dreams and enabling the dreams of others.

Diagnosed with incurable pancreatic cancer, Randy created the lecture as a way to inspire his children. However, he realized that along the way others would also be inspired.

Randy was 47 when he passed away, but it's safe to say he had a rewarding life. He inspired millions with his best selling book, video and inspirational message.

In his honor, check out his 'Last Lecture' video.
