Dr. Stephen Couban 1961–2019
It is with great sadness that I let you all know that Dr. Stephen Couban passed away March 19, 2019 after a short and courageous battle with cancer.
We are going to miss him greatly. We know he has left a tremendous void in our department. We are indebted to him for all he gave us during his time with us. The world and the Department are a better place because he was here.
Our deepest condolences go out to his family and close friends. Please keep them in your thoughts.
Dr. Christine Short
