It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Carl Singer on February 8, 2013. Carl was a staunch supporter of the international yeast community. His good humor, generosity and infectious enthusiasm have been bright highlights of every yeast meeting for many decades. His creativity and engineering prowess have exerted a similarly powerful impact in labs world-wide, contributing to the quality of yeast research and the ease of performing it. He will be sorely missed.

Please send memories celebrating his life to his family at A celebration of Carl’s life will be held at 2 PM on Tuesday, March 26th, at St. Michael’s Church, Minehead, UK.

Thanks to Terry Cooper for drafting this obituary.
