Cary mourns loss of trustee and friend

Paul Risser served as Cary Board Chairman from 2000 to 2007.

A long-time friend of the Cary Institute as well as Honorary Trustee and past Chairman of the Board, Dr. Paul Risser passed away last Thursday, July 10.

Dr. Risser’s commitment to the Cary Institute as a member of its Board of Trustees from 1993 to his recent service as Honorary Trustee, included his leadership as Board Chairman from 2000-2007. Dr. Risser’s quiet, determined, and thoughtful leadership was always infused with a fine sense of humor, all of which was appreciated by those who knew him.

He will be missed by all of us at the Cary Institute.
