<strong>LOGAN—</strong> A memorial celebration of the life and work of former Utah State University graphic design associate professor Alan Hashimoto will be held Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. in the USU Performance Hall.

Hashimoto, who taught at USU for 25 years, died in his office on Feb. 11 from an aortic tear. He was found by a colleague who went looking for him after he was late to a meeting. He was rushed to Logan Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Wednesday’s service will be a celebration in Hashimoto’s honor and an opportunity for students, friends and co-workers to express their appreciation for a beloved professor and colleague.

“Simply put, Alan Hashimoto was a force of nature,” said Art and Design Department head Laura Gelfand after learning about Hashimoto’s death. “His energy was boundless as was his creativity. He touched so many lives in such positive ways, he will be terribly missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know him.”
