Passing Of Alumnus Andy Hong

Dear Alums,

It is with sadness that I inform you about the passage of another one of our UW alums, Dr. Andrew Marc Houg. Andy graduated with the class of 1960, and he practiced for many years in theNorthgate area.  He taught part-time in the Department from 1961 – 1972. Andy was an extremely talented athlete, playing football, basketball, and baseball at the University of Iowa.  At one point, he was the quarterback and captain of the football team.  In his retirement, Andy enjoyed his family and friends, as well as fishing and golfing. We were so glad that he was able to join us at our 70th-anniversary reunion last August.  He was all smiles, and for those who knew him, he had a truly exceptional smile.

A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held for Andy on May 19th at 1 PM at Northlake Lutheran Church in Kenmore.  Click here for more information.
