Vernon L. Singleton

 Vernon L. Singleton

UC Davis V&E has lost a prominent member of our family. Prof. Emeritus Vernon Singleton passed recently, surrounded by Kay, his wife of 69 years, and his children. We will miss him as a true scholar, teacher, colleague, and friend. He contributed so much to the department and to the global wine industry from his trailblazing research on phenolic chemistry and wine aging to his textbooks that are still used throughout the world today educating future generations of wine professionals.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to Yolo Hospice (http://yolohospice.org/support-us/make-a-donation/) or to the • Vernon and Kathryn Singleton Enology Fund in the Department of Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis. For the latter, checks can be made out to the UC Regents and addressed to:

Prof. David Block
