TAYLOR STOEHR, PH.D.
Taylor Stoehr, Ph.D., a Professor
of English Literature at the University of Massachusetts Boston,
Sept. 14, 2013. He is lovingly remembered by all his family, friends,
the many students and colleagues from his years of teaching, the
Gestalt Therapy Community, the probationers whose lives he touched, the
garden groups and poetry groups he inspired, the readers of his many
books and poems, and all those he met in his daily life. His interest
in people was insatiable and in his heart he included us all,
recognizing and valuing us as we do him. We will be celebrating his
life at a Memorial in July of 2014.
