Gokhale was among the first faculty members hired for the newly formed Department of Biostatistics, shortly thereafter renamed the Department of Statistics. He was 79 years old at the time of death.

He spent his entire career at UCR, save for a few short-term visiting assignments. He retired from UCR in 1999, but remained active in the department through research with colleagues and periodic voluntary teaching.

Gokhale studied under a Fulbright travel grant through the Institute of International Education (IIE) in the 1960s. He received his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley and spent some time at the University of Pune, India, before being hired at UCR in 1970.

People are welcomed to share memories about Gokhale via an online page: ucrbsgsac.wufoo.com/forms/mlllvsb0myfotn. Some of these memories will be shared during the campus memorial service, scheduled for Nov. 4 at 4:30 p.m. at The Barn. The tribute is hosted by Department of Statistics faculty. A dinner will follow the service.

For questions regarding the event, email Jill Smith, at Jill.Smith@ucr.edu.
