A memorial service for Dan Oberst, a longtime staff member in the Office of Information Technology (OIT), is planned for 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, in the Edith Memorial Chapel on the Lawrenceville School campus.
Oberst died Nov. 9 after a year and a half battle with cancer. He was 58.
Oberst joined the OIT staff in 1987, and most recently was director of enterprise infrastructure services. Betty Leydon, vice president for information technology and chief information officer, said he was a leader in developing the University’s core computing infrastructure, widely regarded as one of the finest in the country. He was respected for building a set of reliable services in the face of changing technologies, increasing demands, and growing threats and vulnerabilities.
