In Memoriam

The natural world lost a fun-loving, caring person when Lynn Eunice Pigott ’92 passed away on March 19, 2014, at the age of 49.
Lynn was a 1983 graduate of Merrillville High School, and earned an engineering degree from Purdue University, an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management and a master’s degree in kinesiology from UIC.
Yoga was Lynn’s passion, and for 20 years she was a beloved and respected yoga instructor in the Chicago area.
Lynn will be greatly missed by her mother, Geraldine Pigott of Valparaiso, Ind.; her sister, Sharin Oliver (Rob) of Broomfield, Colo.; her brothers: Ted Pigott (Shu-ting) of Taipei, Taiwan, and Tim Pigott (Allison Krecik) of Chicago; her father, John Pigott (Annie) of Monticello, Ind.; her aunt and uncle: Kathy and Tom Workman of Valparaiso, Ind.; her nieces and nephews, Carolyn Oliver, Tommy Oliver and Theo Pigott; her cousins, Matt Workman (Kaye) and K.C. Wells (Trevor); and numerous dear friends.
Lynn leaves a legacy of love, humor and compassion for all of us to mirror in our own lives.

Louis J. Kacyn EMP-24, 58, beloved husband of Kimberly Kacyn and the late Patricia Kacyn, has left us entirely too soon.
Lou was a partner at Egon Zehnder International, a past director of the America-Israel Chamber of Commerce Chicago, and co-founder of Advantage Love Foundation. He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois, a master’s degree from MIT, and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management.
Lou’s devotion to family was unmatched, and his love for life, music, food and laughter brought joy to everyone around him. Humble and selfless to the end, he will be greatly missed, but his spirit will continue on through everyone who knew him.
He is survived by parents Clara and Mike “Mario” Kacyn; daughter Robin Kacyn (Matt Chapman); daughter Anna (Guillaume) Labat and granddaughter Claire Esther; sons Marc, Scott, and Matt; stepsons Alex, Erik and Michael Nomitch; sister Lillian (Alan) Acker; nephews Steven, Kenneth and Daniel Acker; niece Jennifer (Adam) Sherman, grandnephew and grandniece David and Shayna; the Guebel family and other relatives.

Michael Radnor, professor of Management and Organizations, passed away. He was 81.
A distinguished member of the Kellogg community for more than fifty years, Mike started as a professor in 1964 after earning his PhD here. He was the founder and, from 1968 to 1975, the first chair of the MORS department. He focused his research on the intersection of technology and international trade.
In addition to his faculty and research contributions, Michael served as the director of the Center for Technology and Innovation Management. He was also chairman of the Global Advanced Technology Innovation Consortium, an enterprise he co-founded that brings together universities from the U.S., U.K. and Asia to focus on applied research and programs.
His generous spirit and engaging intellect will be missed. His was a global mind for a global era.

Stanley Reiter, Emeritus Professor of Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences, passed away. He will be dearly missed.
After teaching at Kellogg for 40 years, Stanley retired in 2007. He was one of the architects of Kellogg’s transformation into a modern business school. Among his intellectual achievements are important early contributions to optimization theory and the theory of mechanism design. 
Stanley received his PhD in economics in 1955 from the University of Chicago, where he worked for the Cowles Commission for Research in Economics. When he graduated, he joined the faculty at Purdue as a professor of economics and mathematics. He came to Northwestern in 1967 as a professor of economics, mathematics and management. He was a founder of the MEDS department, into which he recruited key faculty, including Mort Kamien, Nancy Schwartz and Mark Satterthwaite, among others. In 1971, he founded the Center for Mathematical Studies in Economics and Management Science, which catalyzed the growth of economic theory and operations research at Northwestern and Kellogg. 
Stan was a Fellow of the Econometric Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Kellogg’s Stanley Reiter Best Paper Award was established in his honor in 2002.
He is survived by his wife, Nina, to whom he was married for 70 years, and his children, Carla and Frank.
