Vanguard University Remembers Dr. Randy Dovel

IG Dovel family

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of former Vanguard University faculty member Dr. Randy Dovel, on Friday, April 9.

Dr. Dovel came to Vanguard University in 2005 after serving as a tenured faculty member at Oregon State University. Having received his PhD from Texas A&M University, Dovel was a trained plant physiologist and served as chair of the department of biology at Vanguard University for four years, teaching courses in botany, genetics, microbiology and field biology. Dovel was an active researcher in the field biology, nitrogen fixation, and plant/pathogen relationships for nearly 20 years. During his faculty career, Dovel also was an expert researcher in plant breeding, plant molecular biology, and microbial water quality analysis. Dovel is a member of the Gamme Sigma Delta academic honor society and a proud recipient of the E.R. Jackman Team Award, recognizing team and interdisciplinary research.

Dr. Dovel was a teacher and mentor to countless biology majors at Vanguard. He touched many lives with his knowledge, wisdom, generosity, and love of Jesus Christ. Dovel took a special interest in his students, and in the senior projects he guided them through.

Dr. Dovel was married to Vanguard University staff member, Teresa Dovel, MA `09, for 35 years and is the beloved father of Kathryn (Kate) Dovel `07 and Kallie (Dovel) Thomson`08, and of two grandchildren, Ariella Dovel and Honey Thomson.

Above all of Dr. Dovel’s research and achievements in his professional field, he had an enormous love for Jesus Christ. Dr. Randy Dovel will be deeply missed by the entire Vanguard University family.Dovel.beach
