Obituary Condolences

GUSTAFSON, Phil Died peacefully in his home in San Jose on January 13, 2012. He was born in Boston on October 30, 1944, and raised in Belmont, Massachusetts. Following graduation from MIT, Phil moved to the Bay Area and spent the last thirty years or so in San Jose. After his retirement from Sun Microsystems, he dabbled with consulting services, and volunteered with Planned Parenthood. Phil was an amazing chef, a pretty decent musician, and collector of all sorts of informational tidbits. Through the internet, he maintained close and lasting friendships with people from all over the world. He is remembered for his warmth and sense of humor, his portrayal of Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, and the speed with which he could solve a Rubik's Cube. He is survived by brother Carl Gustafson of Port Washington, NY, sister Sally Evans of Flagstaff, Arizona, his Massachusetts cousins, and his niece and nephews. Donations in his name may be made to Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, 1691 The Alameda, San Jose, CA 95126.
