SUNY New Paltz mourns the passing of Larry Rowe, class of 1968 on April 15, 2020.

Larry served as the technical specialist in the Department of Physics and Astronomy for 50 years from 1968 until his retirement in 2017.

At a 2017 retirement celebration in Rowe’s honor, Larry’s longtime friend and colleague, Donald Hodder, said, “Of course everybody’s going to remember the corny jokes, which we called ‘Larry-isms.’ But the more important thing is that Larry was always willing to answer somebody’s questions. People would come not only from the sciences but from anywhere on campus to ask for help, and Larry was there for them.”
