Mr. Hafner was a beloved patient at our dermatology office. His smile and presence will be sorely missed. We send prayers and condolences to the family during this difficult time.

I've been thinking about Doc Hafner a lot lately, even before he passed. I can't say how many times I've thought how he used an error in something I wrote as a lesson (I wrote to where it should have been too), but did so without pointing out that it was me. I'm not great at proof reading my own work, but haven't made that mistake again and try to avoid common errors. Beyond that one mistake, I've often thought of his Intro to Non-Fiction class, one of the most memorable, not because it was a lot of fun, but because he made us read books we wouldn't have ever touched otherwise...Lives of a Cell being the most notable. Ok, I didn't read more than two, maybe three chapters, but am pretty sure he knew that and nobody else did either. He is the reason I can write coherent papers, articles, even bullets for PowerPoint presentations. He made it clear writing was important and gave you the confidence that we could be good at it if we tried. Perhaps the greatest lesson was from Creative Writing and the common refrain of I didn't ask if you liked it, I asked if it was good. The logic of this statement applies to so many situations. I can't say how often I've used variations of this type of critical thinking in work and in life. There are so many anecdotes like this.

We had so much fun with - and at times at the expense of - Dr. Hafner. He was truly loved by many, including me. The true test of a man is the impact he has on others. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having known John Hafner - and can't think of a greater tribute.

Dr. Hafner was a wonderful teacher and later in life a wonderful mentor and friend. He will be missed but fondly remembered.
