Community, Education, Progress

From the family of John C. Buechner

John had a great affinity for the University of Colorado. He spent over 50 years being associated with CU in a variety of roles including professor, administrator, chancellor, president and president emeritus. John spent virtually his entire professional career in the CU system. He took great pride in being associated with CU and worked untiringly in hopes of having a positive impact with students, staff, faculty and friends of the university. He believed that by providing an atmosphere and attitude of excellence, the university could provide not only a valuable education, but experiences and relationships to last a lifetime. To John, being a CU Buff was a lifetime distinction which he proudly displayed.
Katie and the family appreciate the many well-wishes, thoughts, and prayers extended by the C.U. community
