Dr Baylor's infectious enthusiasm was a huge inspiration to so many Penn State faculty and staff.You just couldn't be around him or work with him without becoming excited about the importance of forage and grasslands to our state, country and world! He will never be replaced.
Sympathy and prayers to the Baylor Family.
John impressed me the first time we were introduced at the 1964 Crownvetch Symposium - almost 50 years ago. All the glowing adjectives used in these testimonies to John's character and personality were true then and throughout his life. Everyone that knew John was a better person because of it. He was an "infectious" person in every positive way. May you rest in peace, Dr. Baylor.
John was a great inspiration to me, always ready with a smile and a helpful suggestion. As an avid Lady Lions fan John would invite us to come see his "girls" play even asking us to join him on the rare occasions they played UConn. The World has lost a true Gentleman. Charles Hart
He was an inspiration and great help to me in my time in the Agronomy Department at PSU. His knowledge and enthusiasm will be missed. Bill Stringer, Clemson University
The first time I met Dr. John Baylor, I was taken in by his energy, knowledge, and drive to get things accomplished! I got to spend some fun times with John and Henrietta attending AFGC/PAFGC and the Atlantic Seed Association events. I am proud to say I knew a Legend and can be thankful for all of his efforts that has made the forage and seed industry that more successful! My heart and prayers are with you Henrietta and your family at the time of your loss.
