Dr. Dick Gomulkiewicz

It is with great sadness that we announce that Professor Dick Gomulkiewicz passed away on March 25th after a brief bout with cancer. Dick was an original member of SBS when it was founded in the year 2000 and has been an extremely important member of the SBS, WSU, and national and international scientific communities. His deep and caring approach to teaching, research, and service has touched the lives of countless students and colleagues at WSU and around the world. Dick loved his family, his friends, his students, his colleagues, and his work, and will be terribly missed by us all.

If you would like to send remembrances of Dick that will be read by his colleagues and family, please send an email to
