Dr. Paul Heller passes away.

Posted: January 27, 2010

After a long struggle with cancer, Dr. Paul Heller passed away on January 19, 2010. We have lost a very dear friend and colleague.

Paul was a very private, unassuming, and modest person. He was far more comfortable nominating a colleague for an award, than accepting recognition for his own work. I have known few colleagues who were more dedicated to students and their education than Paul. He extended many acts of kindness to students (and others) that were done privately as he wished. I will always remember Paul as a caring and humble man.

Throughout his ordeal, Paul advised me to "Reduce Your Stress and Keep Healthy!!" His advice is important for us all. Please take of yourself and your loved ones.

Paul, you are greatly missed.
