Craig B. Forster
A colleague in Salt Lake City passed along the news this morning that Craig Forster died in a fall while hiking in Zion National Park this past Friday. Craig was a hydrogeologist who split teaching and research duties between the University of Utah and Utah State for many years. Most recently, he headed the Office of Sustainability at UU.
Craig and I worked on the Ferron Sandstone fluvial architecture and related projects when I was at the Utah Geological Survey. The picture to the right is uncharacteristic in that he's not smiling broadly. His thick red hair, wry humor, and constant energy were trademarks as well as his passion for ethnic folk music.
We'll miss him.
update (12-1, 4:45 pm) Jonathan Caine forwarded a better photo that is more typical of Craig , that I'm adding here.
