In Memoriam: Keith Edward Yandell (July 16, 1938 — April 28, 2020)

Dr. Keith Yandell passed away at the age of 81 from complications due to Parkinson's diesease.  Keith was a faithful member of the SCP for many years and one of the foremost Christian scholars in philosophy.  He served as the Julius R. Weinberg Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in addition to being an affiliate professor at the Divinity School of Trinity International.  He was a fruitful and productive scholar.  Many of us have Keith's books on our bookshelves. We commend him into the arms of our Father.

Members can read more about the life and work of Dr. Yandell on his official obituary, and there is a memorial wall in his honor on Facebook.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a memorial and celebration of Keith’s life will be held at a later date. In the meantime, memorials may be made in Keith’s name to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (michaeljfox.org).
