Guilford College Legend Herb Appenzeller dies at 92

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr. Herb Appenzeller, a true giant in our field. Herb passed away on Jan. 5th at the age of 92. He worked most of the previous day trying to complete his latest book, Legends From the Locker Room, the 29th of his prolific career. A founding member of SRLA, Herb has been a fixture at most of the 30 previous annual conferences and will be greatly missed at the upcoming conference in San Antonio. He was a great professional, wonderful mentor, and most of all, a friend to all in SRLA. He will be greatly missed but his legacy of improving safety in sport and recreation will live on.

A viewing will be held at the New Garden Friends Meeting in Greensboro, NC on Friday Jan. 12th at 5:00 p.m. with a service on Saturday Jan. 13th at 2:00 p.m. in Dana Auditorium on the Guilford College campus.

Well wishes may be sent to Ann and/or Tom Appenzeller at:

7503 Sommersby Dr.

Summerfield, NC 27358
