Former WSU English professor dies

Former English professor and dean Candadai Seshacari died on Oct. 6 at the age of 87.

Born in India in 1928, he traveled to the United States in the early 1960s to earn a Ph.D in English from the University of Utah and then returned in 1969 to become a professor of English at Weber State University.

He was a member of the faculty for many years and even spent time as the department chair and the acting dean. In his personal life, he was married for 33 years and was the father of two daughters and grandfather to several grandchildren. Together with his wife, they served as presidents of the Ogden Symphony and Ballet Association and were two of the lead supporters for the Ogden RAMP tax, which helped promote recreation, art, museums and parks in the community.

A memorial reception will be held on Friday Oct. 9, 2015 from 5–7 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road (10600 S.), Sandy, Utah.
