In loving memory of Nicholas Mahoney, Rest in Peace


Sadly we are all reminded that life is all too short. We lost one of the best and brightest stars from our BMCDB galaxy. Words fail to express how much he meant, how his presence made us all better, and how much we will miss him.

I am putting this blog post up in the hopes that people will share not just their thoughts and condolences, but also their favorite memories and stories Nick. I know his influence will stay with me for a life time. I can’t think of much else to say other than to talk to those you care about, never take anyone for granted, and share the warmth, love, and compassion that he shared with all of us. RIP Nick

Dear BMCDB faculty and students,

It is with great sorrow that I share with you this sad news.

The graduate group has received word that Nick Mahoney, a  third year Ph.D. candidate, working in Chris Fraser’s lab, passed away Saturday from a heart attack. There is no additional information at this time, but I wanted to let you all know of this tragic event. Our hearts go out to Nick’s family. I will keep you posted as to what arrangements are being made as I become aware of them.

Campus psychological services are also available if you find you or someone you know needs to reach out for confidential support.  The Counseling Center for Psychological Services (CAPS) is available for students. Please call (530) 752-0871.  The Academic & Staff Assistance Program (ASAP) is available to faculty and staff.  Please call (530) 752-2727.

Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and colleagues,

Mitch Singer
