Beloved Comm Prof Howard Cogan passed away Saturday

Howard Cogan, beloved professor and mentor of hundreds -- if not thousands -- of communication students at Ithaca College, passed away Saturday after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Howard's obituary was published today in the Ithaca Journal; his funeral services were held this afternoon. A memorial service is tentatively planned for a later date at the college.

In lieu of flowers or other expressions of sympathy, the family suggests a donation to Temple Beth El (tbeithaca.org or 607-273-5775), the Franziska Racker Centers (rackercenters.org or 607-272-5891), the Alzheimer's Association of Central New York (alz.org/centralnewyork or 607-330-1647), or the Howard and Helen Cogan AdLab Fund at Ithaca College (Ithaca.edu or 607-274-3260).
