Death of Ben Foote

Our colleague, Dr. Benjamin A. Foote, passed away as a result of cancer on Sunday, July 7, in Kent, Ohio. His wife, Anita, and several family members were at his bedside at the time. Only a few weeks ago, Ben published a paper in which he honored Anita by naming a new species of Sciomyzidae after her (Pherbellia anitae Foote).

John Rawlings, Chen Young, and I are preparing a detailed biography of Ben to be published in the near future. If you would like to receive a copy, please let me know.

A celebration of life honoring Ben will be held in Kent on August 2. Sympathy cards may be sent to Anita Foote, 492 Harvey St., Kent, OH 44240-2711 USA, email address Afoote8@aol.com.

If you have any photographs of Ben, Anita would appreciate receiving copies of them.

Bill Murphy, Fishers, Indiana USA
