COOPERSTOWN – Robert Tirrell, 25, son of Julie and Paul, and brother of Will and Luke, died in Los Altos Hills, Calif., on Oct. 10, 2012.
He was a 2005 graduate of Cooperstown Central High School, a 2009 graduate of Cornell University with degrees in biochemistry and computational biology, and a 2011graduate of Stanford University with a master’s degree in biomedical computation. He worked as lead data engineer for Solum Inc. of Mountain View, Calif.
His extended family and friends, both here and in California, especially partner Joline Fan, would like him remembered as a (hugely) kind and generous man, energetic, devoted to his friends and his work, a little bit selfish, and very stubborn. His passing leaves a void in all of us as massive as his heart and as his intellect.
For those interested, donations in Robert’s memory may be made to the Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research, 251 Campus Drive, Room X215, Stanford, CA 94303.
The Tirrell family will receive friends from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, in the Templeton Room, located in the lower level at The Otesaga, 60 Lake Street, Cooperstown. At the conclusion of the visitation, a memorial service will be offered at 3 p.m. in the Templeton Room.
Arrangements are under the guidance of the Connell, Dow & Deysenroth Funeral Home in Cooperstown.
