With great sorrow, I write to tell you that Darryl Gless, Professor of English at UNC Chapel Hill, has passed away.
Darryl had been battling blood disease for the past year. He was an inspirational teacher, a dear friend to all who knew him, and a fine scholar who exemplified the best our profession has to offer.
I will cherish my memories of times shared with Darryl. He was a sweet and decent man, and a superb scholar.
