UMTA has been blessed to have many great members throughout the years. Inevitably, the time comes when some of these members pass away, often leaving a great legacy behind with family members, students, and with our UMTA family.

As we are made aware of these individuals, we will post the information we receive here, with links to their obituaries when possible.

Please contact one of the website chairs if you are aware of a UMTA member's death.
Dr. Lynn Dean, former UMTA President (2008-2010), passed away July 23rd after 3 weeks of fighting complications due to Covid19. He contributed so much to UMTA and all he taught and with whom he had association.

His legacy of always bringing Crispy Creme donuts to every UMTA Board Meeting, along with his jokes and light-hearted personality will be sorely missed by all of his friends and colleagues throughout UMTA, the State of Utah, and New Mexico where he left an equally strong legacy.

"On through the fog, Kimosabe!!"
