John Doull, 94, Ph.D. and M.D., of Olathe, Ks passed away March 24, 2017. John was born Sept. 13, 1922, in Baker, Mont., to John and Vyvian Doull. John married Vera Mae Orsborn on March 1, 1958, and was devoted to her for 59 years. John served in the Navy as an Electronic Technicians Mate Second Class from 1944 to 1946. He was an Eagle Scout who inspired his twin sons to follow his achievement. He was a faithful husband, loving father, respected colleague and a man of faith. His faith was a foundation of his life. He loved his church, his friends there and his God. His professional accomplishments are significant, but John was always modest and would not want them all listed. He had significant awards and honors worldwide. He advanced the study of Toxicology, and published Casarett and Doull's Toxicology (8 versions), a textbook used in Emergency rooms around the world. He was also Professor Emeritus of Pharmacology and Toxicology at KU Medical Center. John was a Charter Member and past President of the Society of Toxicology. He was a consultant to the National Institute of Health, the National Academy of Sciences, the EPA and The White House Advisory Panel. He was dedicated to his profession and those who were in it. He was committed to University of Kansas Medical Center, his colleagues there, and the study of Toxicology. His commitment to his wife was unwavering. After a recent cancer diagnosis, he pursued rigorous treatment to extend his time with her. It was his single desire. John is survived by wife, Vera, daughter, Ellen (Todd) Winter, son, John (Annette) Doull, son, James (Marti) Doull, grandchildren, Sarah (Darren) Heavey, Rachel Doull, James Doull, Patrick Doull, John V.
