One of the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine’s long-time faculty members, Professor Emeritus John Stump, passed away July 23, 2022, at Westminster Village in West Lafayette, Indiana.  He was 88.

Dr. Stump was raised in Galion, Ohio and earned his DVM degree in 1958 at the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating as the valedictorian of his class.  He then went into private veterinary practice in Bucyrus, Ohio before moving to West Lafayette in 1961, when he accepted a faculty appointment in the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine.  He earned his Ph.D. in 1966.

A faculty member in what is now the Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Dr. Stump retired in 1992.  He was honored by being inducted into the Purdue “Book of Great Teachers” in 1999.  Beyond his Purdue career, Dr. Stump enjoyed working in his garage, tending to his yard, watching sports, and spending time with his family.
