Dear Priscilla,
Our condolence to you and your sons. I have great memories of Dr. Hofert while working for him in the Biochemistry Department at UNMC. We always gave him a bad time about his penmanship. He brought in an award he had received in grade school for his great penmanship. I'm afraid we had a big laugh about that. He always used to bring me rhubarb since mine never did well. When he retired he brought me the whole plant! I moved it with me to MN when I retired. It's doing great! I think of him every time I use that rhubarb. Our thoughts & prayers are with you. Barb Roberts

It's unusual to remember and treasure a former professor, but John Hofert was a rare man. He taught both my husband and myself biochemistry at University of Nebraska Medical Center. He was extremely intelligent, kind, and humble. And we were lucky to call him our friend. He was also my Baha'i brother.
