Dr. Dennis Gregory Dolny passed away surrounded by his family on January 9, 2018. He leaves behind a devoted family: his wife, Ellen, his children Meghan, Gregory, Meredith and Madeline, and a large extended family.  

For 24 years, Dr. Dolny was a faculty member at the University of Idaho, where he directed the Human Performance Laboratory. In 2008, he accepted the Department Head position in the Kinesiology and Health Science Department in the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education & Human Services at Utah State University. Since 2016, Dr. Dolny has also been serving as head of the Nursing and Health Professions Department at USU.

Dr. Dolny’s fierce intelligence and kind heart guided hundreds of students towards their research and academic ambitions. His sense of humor made life a joy for all who knew him. This remarkable man meant so much to his family, friends, students, colleagues, and our community; he will be deeply missed.

His family looks forward to seeing all those who can attend a celebration of his life on January 27th. This is the only event that will take place, and it is open to the public.
