Julius Minor, the husband of Luckyday Residential College Fellow Ethel Young-Minor and university employee, died Saturday morning.
Minor suffered a heart attack and was unable to be resuscitated at the hospital.
His death came as a surprise to Young-Minor, who said that although her husband had high blood pressure and diabetes, he was in good health.
“He worked out all the time and ate really well,” she said.
Young-Minor asked that the university community keep her family in their prayers.
“We’re very thankful for how supportive the community has been,” Young-Minor said. “The community was near and dear to his heart.”
The Minor family hopes to have visitation on Friday and the funeral Saturday afternoon. Dates and arrangements are not final at this time.
