Members of our Mount Mercy community,
A dear and well-respected colleague, teacher, and friend has passed away, and I know the entire campus will join me in mourning the loss of David Doerge. David joined the Political Science faculty in 2001 and was serving as Chair of Mount Mercy’s History, Politics, and Justice Department. David’s outstanding work and personal gifts have touched the lives of many on campus and beyond through the years since he joined Mount Mercy’s faculty, and he will be truly missed.
A visitation for family and friends will be held Wednesday, July 31, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Lensing Funeral Home, 605 Kirkwood Avenue, Iowa City. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the UIHC Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center for Melanoma Research.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and dear friends at this time, and with all who share in their sadness.
