The University of Kentucky College of Engineering is mourning the recent passing of two emeritus faculty members, O.W. Stewart and Jimmie Cathey.
Stewart taught in the Department of Mechanical Engineering for 40 years and was also a research engineer for the Wenner-Gren Aeronautical Research Laboratory, power companies, Cummins Engine, U.S. Patent Office and U.S. Senate. He retired in 1979. His obituary can be found at: http://www.state-journal.com/obituaries.
Cathey joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1979 and fully retired in 2012. Department chair Larry Halloway said Cathey, “had a great impact on generations of students, in the classroom and in his advising.” His obituary can be found at: http://www.milwardfuneral.com/index.cfm/funerals_obituaries.html?obit_id=1F5E2296-CED3-4AA6-9712-840C16FED01B.
