The MIT community's memorial service for Yngve K. Raustein '94 will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9, at the Bartos Theatre in the Jerome B. Wiesner Building (Building E-15), Associate Dean of Students Robert M. Randolph has announced.
Raustein's parents, Elmer and Inghild, and his 18-year-old brother are planning to come to MIT from their home in Os, Norway, to attend the service.
In consultation with his family, a memorial fund at MIT has been established in Raustein's name by his college friends, the students and housemasters of Baker House, and the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The most suitable way of memorializing Raustein at MIT and honoring his love of learning is being discussed with his family and will be announced later, a spokesperson said.
Contributions may be sent to the Yngve K. Raustein MIT Memorial Fund, c/o Ms. Winifred McDonough, Recording Secretary, Office of the Treasurer, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 238 Main St., Suite 200, Cambridge, Mass. 02142.
