It is with a heavy heart that I regret to inform you of the passing Dr. Paul Manion on Thursday, 2 March. Paul Manion was a beloved colleague and Professor of Forest Pathology for 36 years at the State University New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He had a significant impact on the thinking in Forest Pathology, and his textbook "Tree Disease Concepts" was adopted widely in forest pathology courses around the United States.
Paul was a great influence in many of his students' lives and lived his life consistent with his ideals and generosity of spirit. Paul and I became fast friends when I arrived here at ESF in July as the new forest pathologist from California. He took me around to his favorite field sites to become familiar with eastern tree diseases and shared many great stories with me along the way. He will be sorely missed.
Calling hours are on March 31, 2023 at 5:00 p.m., ending at 7:00 p.m., at Michael E. Brown Funeral Services, 2333 Fenner Road, Cazenovia.

Isabel Munck and I are working on an obituary for APS and IUFRO. Please let us know if you would like to contribute.
