"YOD" 2005 Obituary


YODZIS 

YODZIS o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-03-31 published
YODZIS, Peter Paul
Professor Emeritus of Theoretical Ecology.
It is with great sadness that the family of Peter YODZIS announces that Peter passed away peacefully on Easter Monday the 28th of March, 2005 in Guelph, Ontario with his wife Susan, and sons Hans and Michael by his side.
When he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, Peter faced each challenge with integrity and courage. Peter celebrated life every day by sharing his love of music, art, history and his love of good food with his family and Friends. After retiring, Peter continued to work on his research until the end of his life. He was an inspiration to us all. His generous spirit, patience, understanding and intellectual insights shall be missed by his family, Friends, colleagues and students.
Peter was a Professor of Theoretical Ecology, in the Department of Zoology, at the University of Guelph for 25 years. In recognition of his contributions to science, the University of Guelph honoured Peter with the first annual Peter Yodzis Colloquium in 2004, which brought together world renowned scientists.
Peter's undergraduate degree was in Theoretical Physics from Duke University and he received his PhD in Mathematical Physics from the University of New Mexico. After two years of postdoctural work at the Institute of Physics in Dublin, Ireland and in Hamburg, Germany, Peter joined the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Bern, Switzerland. While he was in Switzerland, he became interested in Theoretical Ecology. He entered this field because he truly wanted to change the world. Thirty years later, his insights and ideas have helped us to better understand the world in which we live, and will continue to cast its' light for many years to come.
Peter was a gentle and loving husband to Susan. He was predeceased by his first wife, Karin HENKE. He was a loving father to Hans and Michael. Peter was the son of Florence YODZIS, and the late Peter YODZIS of Maryland. He was the dear brother of Melanie PATRINICOLA of Maryland. Peter was greatly admired by his inlaws, Paul and Vera OSTAPEIC of Toronto. His many nieces and nephews will miss him dearly. A memorial celebrating Peter's life will take place in late spring. Friends may call at the Gilbert MacIntyre and son Funeral Home "Dublin Chapel" 252, Dublin St. N., Guelph, on Friday April 1. Visitation is from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to The University of Guelph for The Peter Yodzis Colloquium Series, to be sent to Alumni Affairs and Development @ University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada N1G 2W1 or send condolences to www.gilbertmacintyreandson.com
