In Memoriam

Dr. Bruce G. Klonsky, a devoted SUNY Fredonia educator and researcher in Psychology for over 40 years, died July 6, 2022 at a hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.  As with most life challenges he faced, he made a valiant and sustained effort to overcome the sudden and unexpected illness that claimed his life. We have created a webpage that contains a complete obituary for Dr. Klonsky.  A celebration of his life will take place on September 30, 2022, in the Horizon Room of the SUNY Fredonia Williams Center from 3:30-5:30 PM, providing time to gather, have light refreshments, and share memories with one another.  For more information, please reach out directly to Dr. Croxton via email.
