Professor Gary S. Yost Passes Away

I am deeply saddened to inform you that my close friend and Colleague Gary S. Yost passed away this morning.   Professor Gary Yost joined the faculty of the College in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology in 1987.  Throughout his career Gary maintained an active research group and was a mentor to many generations of students, postdocs and visiting scholars.   Gary was always an an avid support of the College and ardent Ute fan.   The family has asked me to pass along their thanks to the College for its support of Gary over the years and lifelong friendship.  He will truly be missed.   Information about services will be forthcoming. Our Best Wishes Go out to Barb and all of Gary's family.
