Memorial to honor Tony Fink, April 13

To: UCSC Community

From: Chancellor Blumenthal

Many of you may know that Tony Fink, a distinguished professor of chemistry and biochemistry on our campus, died on Sunday following a yearlong illness. In addition to calling your attention to the passing of this special person, I want to let you know that an event on campus is being planned in his honor.

A memorial to honor Tony will be held on Sunday, April 13, at 2 p.m. at the University Center.

Earlier this week, Stephen Thorsett, dean of Physical and Biological Sciences, sent the following letter about Tony to members of that division. Steve's letter highlights just a few of Professor Fink's many contributions to UCSC and describes the spirit in which Tony made those contributions. I invite you to read Steve's letter at:

Please join me in expressing our sincere condolences to Tony's wife, Shirley; to other family members; and to his many colleagues and friends, on and off campus.

Those who wish to honor Professor Fink may do so by making a donation to the Tony Fink Memorial Fund to support students and research in Chemistry and Biochemistry. Donations can be sent to Attn: Tony Fink Memorial, 1156 High Street, MS: PBSci Development, Santa Cruz, CA, 95064.
