Medievalist Paul Szarmach, on April 27th.

For many years, he ran the International Conference on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, until 2006.

In that year he became a Fellow of the Medieval Academy of America for his scholarship in early English literature, and its Executive Director until his retirement in 2011.

I've never heard a bad word spoken of him. He always had a twinkle in his eye and was willing to listen to and encourage new research and new researchers.   

M.
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Olympia Dukakis. 

Johnny Crawford, whom I believe was one of the original Mouseketeers, in addition to his role in The Rifleman.
[A]n effective administrative philosophy would be to remember that faculty members are goats.  Occasionally, this will mean helping them off of the outhouse roof or watching them eat the drapes.   -mended drum
