Remembering Dr. Luis V. Colom

Dr. Luis V. Colom 1952-2014

The University of Texas at Brownsville has lost a dear friend and colleague. It is with great sadness that we announce that Dr. Luis V. Colom passed away Thursday, March 27 after a valiant fight against cancer.

Dr. Colom was a dedicated colleague, a treasured friend, a beloved father and devoted husband. All of us will miss his generous abrazos and his broad smile.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his loving family and his brothers and with the hundreds of students that are now scientists and physicians because Dr. Colom cared.

A service celebrating his life will be held on campus at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 3rd, in El Gran Salón of the Student Union. Please join us. In keeping with the spirit of the celebration, please wear bright colors.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial gifts to support student scholarships in memory of Dr. Colom be made to The University of Texas Brownsville, University Relations, One West University Blvd., Brownsville, TX 78520. To share a memory click here.
