Remembering Greg Bahun

It is with profound shock and sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Greg Bahun, Chemistry & Chemical Biology. Greg has been a familiar friendly face in the Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology since his undergraduate days. His love for organic chemistry was apparent in his choice of research group; he was the first student to join the Adronov group. Shortly thereafter he took on the important role of Instructional Assistant for the large second year organic chemistry courses, CHEM 2OA3 & 2OB3.  In this role, he mentored and encouraged innumerable undergraduate students with his humour and easy approachable manner. Greg was also a mentor and friend to many of our graduate students, through his role as the Teaching Assistant Coordinator and his general love of life. He was a constant participant in the Department’s social activities, including his ongoing support of its baseball teams, and enthusiastic participation in Trivia Night at the Phoenix, Halloween parties, Golf Days, and all things that brought people together. He will be dearly missed by the faculty, staff and students who have worked with him. His funeral will be held in Sault Ste. Marie on Saturday. More details about Greg's life can be found here.
