Regret to report that BILL KIMMEL PASSED AWAY April 29, 2015 of pancreatic cancer.


Bill Kimmel's passing was a grim reminder that life is not infinite. So I've been reassessing what to do next. It has been a rough year - Bill and I were good friends and business partners for almost 40 years. I miss him every day.

But life goes on. Here are some current plans:

Kimmel Gerke Associates...

Decrease the consulting, but stay involved with EMC training. I really enjoy EMC training, and it gives the most bang for the buck for helping others. More effective to work with ten or twenty at a time than just one or two.

Efforts are underway to hand off consulting projects to select colleagues. The objectives are to support our clients, while helping other EMC consultants.

My training goal is to limit classes to no more than one a month. Just got back from a class, and have more scheduled (both in-house and public.) 

Recently added the "EMC in Military Systems" class (partnered with the Applied Technology Institute), along with the popular "Design for EMC" class (partnered with Tektronix for over 20 years),


Started a blog on consulting five years ago, which now has over 150 posts. In conjunction with the blog, presented several short tutorials on consulting.   

Efforts are underway to increase this activity --  post more, and develop an on-line class. An introductory e-book is on the wish list, along with some magazine articles.

Still considering the book I’ve always promised myself to write. After a couple of EMC books, I don’t need it for the ego boost, but it would be fun to do. 


Goof off more and enjoy life. Play with the dog and hit the road in the RV. Thanks to the consulting business, I no longer need to work. Not bragging — just grateful for my success in the wacky world of EMC.

It has been great fun, and I've enjoyed meeting and helping so many people -- a sentiment that Bill also shared.

Thanks to all for your kindness in this difficult time,
