Department founding member passes away

Posted: March 24, 2014

It is with sadness that I inform you that Stan Gesell passed away on March 21st. Stan was one of the founding members of our Department and made very important contributions to pest management of crop pests. Nearly a dozen of our fact sheets were authored by Stan and remain posted and relevant for today.

Stan retired as Professor Emeritus of Entomology Extension in 1984.  Stan continued to be very active in community service following his retirement.  Details about his memorial service (tomorrow) and life are posted in the obituary.
