A tribute to a fallen leader at Micron: Steve Appleton

Today is an incredibly sad day at Micron / Lexar. Their CEO and leader, Steve Appleton, was killed in a small airplane accident this morning. 

Steve was a really great guy who helped turn Micron into a world class company; one that I am proud to be affiliated with for a long long time. He will be missed by us all.

At the young age of 51, Steve lived life to it's fullest. He loved to fly airplanes and ended up dieing doing what he loved.

I am still sitting here in shock...
