Grave site for Dave and Lucile Packard
and also for Fred Terman
updated Jan. 10, 2008
Dave and Lucile
Packard are buried in Alta Mesa Memorial Park which is
located off of Arastradero Road next to Foothill
Expressway next to the city of Los Altos on the
southeastern side of Palo Alto about two miles (as the
proverbial crow flies) from the Hewlett-Packard headquarters on Page Mill
Road. Locating the graves is very simple:
Enter the park and drive about 300 feet to the angled parking on the right --
you are very close to the graves.
there and you will see two large trees with a marker in-between as shown
in the picture below taken from the parking lot.
3. Dave and Lucile's graves are about 30 feet to
the left and back of the tree on the left (in the
above picture) as shown in the picture below.
You can read information about
the memorial service on the link below.
The grave (I think it is a vault) of Frederick Emmons
Terman who taught electrical engineering at Stanford University and who had both
Bill and Dave as students and convinced them to start a company together and is
known as the father of Silicon Valley is in the building at Alta Mesa Memorial
Park only about one hundred feet or so from the grave of Dave. I will take
pictures of that on my next trip. See http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=8834004
