David J. Wylie, 49, a program manager of the ACS Green Chemistry Institute, died suddenly on Sept. 28.

Wylie earned a B.S. in chemistry in 1989, an M.S. in physical chemistry in 1990, and a Ph.D. in analytical and environmental chemistry in 1994, all from the University of Auckland, in New Zealand.

After moving to the U.S., he worked as a researcher at the University of Hawaii, Texas A&M University, and the University of Miami in Florida until 2000. He then joined Milliken Chemical in Spartanburg, S.C., where he managed the company’s polymer additives laboratory until 2005. After a one-year stint at 3V Chemical in Georgetown, S.C., he taught at Georgetown High School from 2007 until he moved to ACS in 2011. Wylie became an ACS member earlier this year.

He is survived by his daughter, Sophia, and son, Zealand; his parents, Keith and Joyce; and his sister, Sharon. His brother, Malcolm, predeceased him.
