To the family:
Don--such an unassuming and amazing person and teacher! When UCSC still offered writing courses for staff, I enrolled in a business writing class. Don imbued what could have been painfully dull lessons with charm, dignity, grace and gentle humor. And we all were the better for it: he modeled how to write our bureaucratic memos with both UC-approved business style and heart (oxymoronic, but it worked). The rest of my time at UCSC, I would email snippets from the Rule Book (a co-worker and I drew the short straws to "clean" it up): "Don, this is how the policy was written! Who can possibly comprehend this?!" I could see his benign smile and hear his chuckle through cyberspace. I miss his presence--I am grateful that he was my writing teacher.

The world has lost a beautiful light in the passing of Don Rothman. If there is any comfort in a time of grieving for his lovely family, know that his light still shines through you and many of us who he taught and befriended. Leona Phillips

My condolences to the Rothman and UCSC Families. While I was not a student of Professor Rothman's or an Oakes student, Professor Rothman welcomed me with open arms into his office and in the coming weeks helped me prepare and perfect my personal statement for medical school. Now being in medical school, I cant thank him enough for his support, assistance, and encouragement to follow and accomplish my dreams. Thank you again Professor Rothman for everything you did for me and thousands of others just like me.

With heartfelt sympathy to the family for this loss. The Bible assures us of where our loved ones are and gives a wonderful hope that is in store for them in the future.
