Lawrence C. Cerny, 90, died on Nov. 29, 2019, in Dayton, Ohio.

“His love of his students was central to his career. I remember his students visiting our house while growing up and their delight at the attention my father gave them. He was truly the consummate college professor. He enjoyed traveling in the summer to share his research worldwide with other educators and entertain his family along the way. He also leaves a legacy of research in the development of artificial blood.”—Charles L. Cerny, son
