Oebele Jan (John) Buffinga, Jan. 6, 1954 - May 27, 2019

A devoted member of our faculty, John Buffinga had only recently retired from the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures. He will be sorely missed by students and colleagues (both faculty and staff alike). The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences extends the greatest sympathy to Dr. Buffinga's husband Jeff, his daughter Henny, and the rest of his family.
