In memoriam: LeRoy Gardner, Jr.

GardnerL-2007[1].jpgAs many of you know, senior teaching specialist LeRoy Gardner, Jr. (Postsecondary Teaching and Learning) passed away on Saturday, September 6, after a long battle with lung cancer. LeRoy's funeral will be held at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow, September 11, at the Estes Funeral Chapel (2210 Plymouth Avenue North, Minneapolis).

Following the funeral there will be a time for family and friends to gather at the Urban League (2100 Plymouth Avenue North, Minneapolis), which is across the street from the Estes Funeral Chapel.

A recent Star Tribune article details LeRoy's many accomplishments and passion for teaching. He will be greatly missed by his department, the college, and the larger University community.
