Death of Dr. Dick Axtell – Veterinary Entomologist at NC State

By Alec Gerry | January 26, 2017

It is with great sorrow that I notify you of the death of Dr. Dick Axtell.
The obituary has not yet been published, but the funeral is scheduled for Saturday (January 28th) afternoon in Raleigh. Dick was the 1993 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award in Veterinary Entomology at the Livestock Insect Workers Conference in Santa Fe, NM, and a longtime leader of the LIWC and veterinary entomology in general. Most of our veterinary entomologists can trace their roots back to Dick Axtell, and his impact on the discipline cannot be overestimated.  Dr. Axtell was a longtime and very active member of SOVE.
Our condolences go out to all of his family and friends.
Nancy Hinkle
