Ronald Taylor, a professor of management described as being beloved by his students, died at home Dec. 23 after a battle with cancer. He was 62.
One of the last things he was concerned about was finishing the fall semester and getting his grades in, said Management Professor Madison Holloway.
“There were so many things that he did for his students,” said Holloway. “His courses were not easy, but his teaching was very much appreciated and he wasmuch beloved by his students.“
Added Professor Debbie Gilliard, Management Department chair, “Ron was a wonderful colleague. He was always willing to help in efforts to better the department and often brought sanity and reason to department faculty discussions.”
Born in Phoenix, Ariz., Taylor graduated from the University of Denver and later graduated summa cum laude from the law school at Arizona State University. He was an attorney in Mesa, Ariz., and Denver before becoming a teacher.
He started at MSU Denver in 1981. He received the Excellence in Teaching Award from the University’s Alumni Association in 1987 and the Excellence in Teaching Award from the MSU Denver chapter of the Golden Key National Honor Society in 1986.
A private burial was held. Watch @MSU Denver for information if a memorial service is planned.
