House MD´s Lawrence´s Kutner Obituary
Mercer County Courier
April 7, 2009
Dr. Lawrence Kutner died on Thursday, April 2nd from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 33 years old.
“Dr. Kutner was a hard working, young doctor with a kind, unassuming, gentle manner. He will be missed by all of us”, said Dr. Lisa Cuddy, Dean of Medicine at Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, where Dr. Kutner worked.
Dr. Kutner was born in Freemont, California. Tragedy marred his early life as he lost his parents, Karamchand and Niki Baidwan, who were shot during an armed robbery. After a couple of years in foster care, Julia and Richard Kutner adopted Lawrence. He showed great promise in high school, winning a Westinghouse Science award for an experiment involving dark matter. His adoptive parents mused that he showed a freethinking, inventive streak from a young age.
Kutner received a full scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Physics. He then attended the University of Tel Aviv Medical School and completed an internship and residency in Sports and Rehabilitation Medicine through the University of Colorado. “He wanted to be a doctor since seeing ‘M.A.S.H.’ as a kid”, said his close friend and colleague Dr. Chris Taub. “I think he modeled himself a little bit after Hawkeye Pierce.”
Kutner’s girlfriend Nicole Brewster remembered that Lawrence, being adopted and of Indian ancestry, always felt like an outsider. But she said he didn’t resent it – instead, he felt the experience gained him added insight and perspective. This drew him to take atypical paths in his career and personal life. One such example is when he decided to break the world record for distance crawling. After a grueling 43 hours, he managed to crawl 20 miles, and earn himself a place in Guinness Book in 2002.
During his free time, Lawrence played water polo and swam competitively. He enjoyed science fiction and was a frequent participant in the Clarion Science Fiction Workshops.
Dr. Kutner is survived by his adoptive parents. A private Hindu celebration of his life was held yesterday.
They also put uo what his co-workers wrote for him:
Dr Chris Taub:
I really don´t want to wrte anything. I Have nothing to say… I´m pissed off. Why didn´t you talk to me? Idiot. I miss you.
Dr Allison Cameron:
I don´t know if you knew this, but… out of all those new people, I´m pretty sure you were House´s favorite.
Dr Lisa Cuddy:
I think what I remember most was your kindness. When I first adopted Rachel, a lot of people offered to come help, to babysit. But you´re the only one who actually did. Nobody could make Rachel laugh like you. We´ll both miss you.
I Wish I´d gotten there sooner.
Dr James Wilson:
When you gave me some of your short stories to read, I remember you practically apologized as you handed them over; that´s how shy you were about sharing them. But I don´t know why. They were actually pretty good.
My first memory of you is when you got fined as #6. My second memory of you is when you reappeared as #9. My third is when you set that patient on fire trying to restart his heart. Later on, I was the one you confided in about your parents. About what happened to them. And I always felt there was so much more to talk about…
I wish we had more time.
Dr. Robert Chase:
I didn´t know you that well – I guess nobody did x
