From the March 26 Emeriti "Update" produced by Richard "Bud" Meade:
Donald Leffler, associate professor emeritus (Physics), 1958-85
From the April 3 Emeriti "Update" produced by Richard "Bud" Meade:
Sadly, Donald Leffler, Associate Professor of Physics (1958-1985), faculty senator, and dedicated academic advisor, died at his home in Idaho the evening of April 1, 2008. I was fortunate to get to know Don as a hall mate in the main corridor of Hartwell Hall in 1970 when he worked with Mildred Kiefer and Susan Cloutier in the Academic Advisement Office which was across the hall from the Personnel Office. This work was in addition to his teaching in the Physics Department.
Don Leffler was particularly loved by his close friends the late Gregg Scarborough, the late Bob Griswold, the late Don McWherter, the late Steve Dellaquila, and the late Bill Owens, as well as by Rosie Rich, Dick Alexander, Charles Clevenger C. Stuart Dube, and Jeanette D'Agostino Banker, who was a co-advisor with Don to the Class of 64, among so many others who were blessed by his friendship, dedicated teaching, and advisement.
I can say it no better than Don's dear friend Jeanette D'Agostino Banker: "Hate losing good friends. Blessed that they were part of our lives!" We are sad to hear of the death of Donald Leffler but happy to have known him. We are indebted to him for his many contributions to the College during its period of major transformation in the 60s, 70s and 80s.
One friend has suggested that some people may be interested in remembering Don with memorial gifts to the Donald and Beatrice Leffler scholarship at the College.
