For me there have been several that would fit the bill.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with a few outstanding cardiologists.. Julio Palmaz-the one the coronary stent is named after was one. Met the lesser known other half of the inventor team Dr. Richard Schatz.
Dr. Red Duke is quite a character. Got to sit and chat with him a few times.
Here at CM I would have to say that Stormin Norman is unforgettable ! Can't wait to meet with him again on BC4.
I am sure Dave the Wave is an unforgettable character, too. One day I shall meet him, too.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.
