In Memoriam: Eric Arthur Wahrenbrock, M.D.

 

September 19, 2005  |  

Eric Arthur Wahrenbrock, M.D., born January 31, 1937 in San Diego passed away April 16, 2005 at his home in the loving presence of his children and friends.  He served UCSD's School of Medicine for 35 years in the Department of Anesthesia, including 12 years as an Associate Dean for Curriculum and Student Affairs, and 15 years as the Director of the Anesthesia Residency Program. He also served for several years as the Director of the UCSD Medical Scientist Training Program.

"As a leader, he was charismatic and magnetic, attracting many people to San Diego and the UCSD Department of Anesthesia," said Jon Benumof, M.D., Professor of Anesthesiology and a close personal friend. "As a scholar, he displayed extraordinary intellectual capability and integrity.  As a teacher, he broadly defined his responsibilities and shepherded his students through many of life's challenges.  As a person, he was a cherished friend to all.  Dr. Wahrenbrock defined the quintessential good person; to all he imparted a quiet graciousness."

Dr. Wahrenbrock is survived by his father, Vernon Wahrenbrock, of La Mesa; sister, Karen Maxwell, of El Cajon, his daughter Laura Lardon, and son Mark Wahrenbrock, Ph.D., of San Diego.

A Memorial Service is scheduled for Thursday, April 28, at 3 PM at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.
