Goodbye Dr. McGee!

It was only relatively recently that I learned of the passing of Charles T. McGee, MD who I worked closely with nearly 20 years ago and who was a great inspiration to me.

20 years ago, it was Dr. McGee who had partnered up with my friend and mentor Rodger Q. Estes to start Chee Energy, which was a company that manufactured and distributed pulsed LED blankets and hand-held devices along with other therapeutic devices.

Dr. McGee and Rodger both were friends with Linus Pauling, Ewan Cameron and others in the same field and he was a pioneer in orthomolecular medicine. Below is a copy of the obituary from last August and unfortunately, I only learned of his passing about a month ago. Dr. McGee’s obituary is very humble and is but a small sliver of his great contributions to the field of medicine and to humanity.

Thank you for everything Dr. McGee!

His obituary is below:

Charles T. McGee, MD

Charles (Chuck) T McGee M.D., 84, from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho left us to join his beloved wife, Carol June, in God’s Kingdom on August 10, 2019. Chuck was born, April 28, 1935 in Turlock, California to his parents, Leonard Lacy McGee and Margaret Elizabeth McGee. He was a very inquisitive child who always dreamed of growing up to serve people as a doctor.

He pursued his passion and graduated in the top of his class at University of Washington where he excelled at and chose obstetrics as his focus. He continued to practice this field until late in his life. Chuck met his wife while he was a senior medical student at Wesley Hospital in Chicago. Lovely Carol was a head nurse and the two fell fast in love. They travelled the globe together for years and then decided to start their family. They adopted their two children, Tom and Liz.

Chuck dedicated his life to his medical career and his family. He loved skiing, golfing, piloting model airplanes, gardening, and, he also published four medical research books. His love of modern medicine and alternative treatments made Chuck a unique, well rounded physician. He was loved by everyone he came in contact with. His quick wit and dry sense of humor kept people laughing and on their toes at the same time.

Chuck is survived by daughter, Margaret Elizabeth Bunch, and devoted son-in-law, Brent Bunch of Rathdrum; son, Thomas McGee and daughter- in-law, Jaclyn McGee, of Seattle, Washington; his cousin, Martha Hall of Michigan; brother-in-law, Skip Cooper of Seattle; grandchildren: Blake and Alisha Schuttemeier of Coeur d’Alene, Kody McGee, Brandon Bunch, Brooklyn Bunch, Kyle McGee, all of Rathdrum; great grandchildren, Tia and Logan Schuttemeier. Chuck is also survived by a large number of nieces and nephews and family members from all over the country. He is preceded in death by his parents, Leonard and Margaret McGee, and sister, Barbara Cooper.

If you would like to make a charitable donation on behalf of Chuck, please donate to the Schneidmiller Hospice House, 2290 W Prairie Ave, Coeur d’Alene Idaho 83815.

A funeral service will be held for Chuck on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 3:00 PM at Yates Funeral Home – Coeur d’Alene Chapel, 744 N. 4th St., Coeur d’ Alene, ID 83814.

A reception will follow at Ponderosa Golf Course, 1291 N Galena Dr, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814.

Dr. Elizabeth A. Rauscher

At our 8th Annual Energy Science & Technology Conference, I learned that Dr. Elizabeth A. Rauscher had recently passed. Although I have known about her for a long time, I have never had the honor of meeting her. Many people that I know working in this field has been inspired by her vast contributions over the years. Please take a moment to learn about work.

Below is Dr. Rauscher’s bio:

She has worked in the field of Nuclear and Astrophysics at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California and Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. She has been a consultant at Stanford Research Institute, for NASA on the Space shuttle and a delegate to the United Nations. She is author of more than 275 scientific paper, 6 books, and has 5 U.S. patents. Her main fields of research include: Nuclear & Atomic Physics, Biomedical Engineering & Geophysics Monitoring and Data Analysis

From a very early age as a young girl, Elizabeth knew that her passion and destiny lay with her desire to fundamentally do good in the world, and to provide a meaningful impact on the way in which we – humankind – navigate.

With her early insights into the nature of Energy and Space-time dynamics, Rauscher chose to pursue the language of physics and mathematics to help give voice to these insights.  As such, she was among the first two females to graduate with a PhD. in her field of research, and has subsequently been pioneering her way forward with countless publications, lectures and laboratory experimentation.  She is a keen contributor to the fields of both theoretical and applied physics, and her personal patents and research positions demonstrate this commitment.

Additionally, Rauscher’s work has had profound influences on numerous fields of science, lending vital contribution to Nobel-worthy works.  We are currently in the process of creating a detailed mind-map that will accurately identify the scope of influence and relatedness that her insights and contributions have touched.

Most excitingly, Dr. Rauscher is no where near finished!  Though her career could easily conclude with her distinguished honors and discoveries, Rauscher still has more to contribute before she can finally acquiesce to some form of retirement!
