Dale J. Benos (1950 - 2010)

From the moment Dale joined the Associate Editors of the JBC, he was an interactive and truly valuable member of the team. He drew on his extensive experience in other venues, and his enthusiasm and positive attitude led to excellent suggestions and important contributions to the Journal. He will be sorely missed.
-- Judith S Bond, Journal of Biological Chemistry associate editor

Dr. Benos had such an incredible way of lighting up a room as soon as he entered it. His enthusiasm for the journal and deep affection for his family were an inspiration. He truly cared about people and always took the time to ask how you were doing. His wonderful energy and spirit will be greatly missed.

Dale was my mentor as a doctoral student. In other ways he was like the older brother I never had. He was one of the most influential people in my life both scientifically and personally. Not a day passes that I don't think of him. CM


I knew Dale for over 25 years as a colleague at UAB and later just as a friend. In addition to respecting Dale as a scientist I came to know him as a kind and generous person. My fondest memory of Dale is the enthusiasm he showed each year in a course we offered Birmingham City School teachers called BioTeach. He was alway a favorite. I will miss seeing Dale.
