A Celebration of John Rehder's Life

John Rehder's untimely and all too soon passing on April 19, 2011,was quite a shock to the whole department.  John was a kind man and a fine colleague and his death has created a large absence in the life and heart of our department.  In that context, faculty and students in the department got together on May 7, 2011, at Dr. Harden's house to celebrate John's life and to strengthen our connection with each other.  We are honored to have his wife, Judy Rehder, and daughter, Karen Rehder, at the celebration. For several hours, we shared many wonderful stories about John and we know that our lives have been enriched by John's presence and that anyone who spent time with him was better for it.
