RE: The Passing of Daniel Duffy, DPM


 


I am saddened to learn of the recent passing of Dr. Dan Duffy. Dr. Duffy was the founding doctor of Cleveland's annual No Nonsense Podiatric Seminar. Since its inception in 1985, Dan ran the seminar and his vision was that it would be filled with quality speakers. The majority of the speakers were not sponsored by any pharmaceutical company, lab, or other corporate entity. He also made sure that the tuition was not only affordable, but he provided meals for all attendees as well sponsors of booths for the entire 3 days.


 













Dr. Daniel Duffy



 


I had the distinct honor of working with Dan as a speaker at the No Nonsense Seminar for over 20 years. Working with him and seeing how much he cared for all of our colleagues was always a breath of fresh air. I will always miss him. I have been informed by Dr. David Hintz that in Dan's honor, the No Nonsense Seminar will continue serving our community for many years to come.

RE: The Passing of Kenneth Canter, DPM



I graduated from PCPM with Kenny in 1972. We both hailed from DC and suburban Maryland, so for 4 years we were in school together and made trips back and forth from Philly to Maryland. Kenny had a perpetual smile and a completely positive personality which I'm sure helped him in his professional career. After graduation, our paths took different directions, but it was always a treat to see him and "catch up" at seminars and meetings. I will never forget him and I extend my sympathies and condolences to his family.

Ken was an old friend who started off practicing in Maryland. We attended many meetings  and residency programs together. He was a mild mannered podiatrist who cared about podiatry and his patients. He will be missed, and his patients will also miss him at the VA Hospital.

I had the pleasure of knowing Kenny Canter from the early days of podiatric expansion in the VA. He built a model podiatric patient care and training program at the Minneapolis VA. He was one of those docs who worked in the trenches and devoted his career to serving patients and training residents without seeking credit or commendation. Nevertheless, his professional legacy will live on in those of us whose friendship he shared, and in those whom he taught and cared for. Rest in peace.

It is great sadness that I report the passing of friend and colleague Kenneth Canter, DPM, formerly Chief of Podiatry and Residency Program Director at the Minneapolis VAMC.


 













Dr. Kenneth Canter



 


Please read his obituary as it describes Ken very well. Despite his debilitating condition Ken was one of the most positive and optimistic people I have ever come across. He will indeed be missed.

I was very sorry to hear about the passing of my old friend Janusz Skwark, DPM. He was a fellow classmate from Scholl 1986.

It is with great regret that I note the passing of Jay R. Rosenberg, DPM in Ft Lauderdale, FL on April 21. He was a graduate of American University and NYCPM Class of 1970. He practiced in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY for many years before retiring to Florida.  He was a friend to me while I attended the school and, later, a surrogate father-in-law. He leaves his four children and several grandchildren. He will be missed by all.

Fred Youngswick was the most kind, considerate, fair, smart, understanding, and imaginative of our profession. His tenure as CPMA President was flawless. He was a great surgeon and deeply believed in every single student and resident he taught.


 


Sympathies to Cathey, Fern, and family. May the loss you feel now, soon change to fond memories of Freddy. I will treasure the times I had with him.

On behalf of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine (AAPSM), we would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family of Thomas Amberry, DPM. Dr. Amberry was a tremendous asset to the profession and was the 2002 recipient of our AAPSM Golden Foot Award which is awarded to podiatrists for educating the public on the importance of physical fitness and the role of podiatric sports medicine in the care of the athlete.

I knew Dr. Amberry during my residency at Long Beach Memorial Hospital. He would come by my residency director's office, Dr. Hubbard's office, talk about basketball and other things, and was very helpful with advice for a young podiatrist. Although I did not get to see him do his famous free throws, he did ask me to recheck the counts and to verify that the counts were accurate. He was a delightful gentleman, fun to be around, and will be missed.

RE: The Passing of Fred D. Youngswick, DPM


 


It's very sad to hear of the passing of Fred D. Youngswick, DPM. Fred and I, along with 50+ students, attended and graduated from the California College of Podiatric Medicine (CCPM) in San Francisco, California, on May 25, 1975. We were among a few fortunate members of the Class of 1975 to remain at CCPM and the Pacific Coast Hospital, completing our respective residency and/or fellowship training from 1975 to 1977.


 


Our time spent at CCPM as students, residents, fellows and faculty occurred at a special time, in a very special place that produced some highly influential podiatrists who distinguished themselves as leaders of our profession held in high esteem by students, residents, and peers. Fred was a stand-out among the best and brightest in our profession that the baby-boomer generation had to offer. I offer my deepest condolences to Cathy, her children and grandchildren, with the hope that they will find peace and comfort from their personal loss.

RE: The Passing of Fred Youngswick, DPM


 


As a first year resident at CCPM in 1983, I informed my residency directory, Fred Youngswick, that I needed to have my wisdom teeth removed the following Friday. Fred asked me what time my appointment was and how long it would take. I replied that it was scheduled for two hours at 8 AM. He said “OK, come in at 12 noon then.” Freddie, I appreciated the extra two hours then and I wish I had those two hours with you now.

RE: The Passing of Fred Youngswick, DPM



It was extremely sad to learn of the passing of Fred Youngswick. My condolences to his wife, Cathy, and their children. Freddy was one of my former students, a former resident, and he became a trusted colleague and a true friend. I have been so proud over the years to watch him accomplish so much within our profession.  


 


He was actively involved in academics, a leader within California's state podiatric medical association and continued to be a teacher and mentor to many younger podiatrists. It was my pleasure and honor over the years to have been able to spend personal time with Freddy whether fishing on the Klamath River or playing golf.  He was a true "mench" and he will be missed, but not forgotten.

RE: The Passing of Fred Youngswick, DPM



I remember my very first and only encounter with Dr. Fred Youngswick on the day of my oral board certification by ABPS. The year was 1995 and I was very nervous and tired during the examination process. I ended up in a room for one of my eight oral questions, at which time Fred was sitting in the chair to do the examination with me. After a few minutes of going through the oral board question, Fred put his papers down and said, "great, you did a good job." I then thought that I didn't finish giving him all the answers that he needed to finish the question, but he assured me I was done and then asked me if I had any questions. We then spent the next 10 minutes or so discussing distal first metatarsal osteotomies such as the Youngswick procedure which had nothing to do with the board question.


 


At the end of our discussion, I thanked him for all his insight and then he proceeded to give me his number and told me to call him any time if I had any issues about anything. It is nice to know that there are still some nice people out there that are willing to give the extra mile to help young doctors when they appear to be in need of any emotional help. Fred doesn't know this, but his calm wit and demeanor had a very positive influence on me since our meeting that year. As I have been exposed to younger students, residents, and doctors since then, I have tried to treat them the way Fred treated me on stressful afternoon while taking a board certification exam. I only hope that somebody treats my son, Brandon (TUSPM class of 2020), when he takes his exams the same way Fred treated me. We will miss you Fred.

RE: The Passing of Fred D. Youngswick, DPM


 


I just heard  from Jim Stavosky of the passing of Fred Youngswick. I am still trying to process this as I write. All I can think of is the story of the second surgery I ever scrubbed (besides with my father and Josh Gerbert). I can just barely remember coming into the operating room with him at San Francisco's St. Mary's hospital as a third year student. The procedure we were doing was, naturally, a Youngswick bunionectomy. 


 













Dr. Fred Youngswick



 


I vaguely remember him patiently walking me through the surgery-- most of which was a blur for me. My most vivid memory, though, was the discussion in the hallway afterward. He told me "David, I hope one day you have the privilege to do in there what I did with you and for you, because it's the greatest gift in the world." I think it wasn't just his eponymous osteotomy that will outlive him. Rather, it was his innate goodness and generosity. Rest in peace, Uncle Freddy.

Another pioneer of our profession has passed. Dr. Hy Rosenfeld was a gentleman and a dedicated partner in our professional journey. He was a long-time member of the House of Delegates whose knowledge, smile, and wit were always welcome. A few years ago, we spoke about the "old timers" and how we missed the friendships that existed for so many years. He gave back to so many, and his great sense of humor will be missed. Rest in peace my good friend and thanks for a job well done, Dr. Sweetheart.

RE: The Passing of Hyman Rosenfeld, DPM


 


Hyman Rosenfeld, DPM, 99, of Billingham, WA was my mentor whose shoulders I (and countless others) stood when I first began private practice in Colorado in the early '70s. He was the face of podiatry during his long career in Denver. He embraced all of his colleagues with warmth, sharing, and concern. His approach to practice was unique and progressive for his time. He and his wife (Irene) invited us over for dinner numerous times and made sure that we always could visit his practice to learn some practice nuggets. He served on every committee and office in the Colorado Podiatry Association, APMA, and the Academy of Practice Administration. 


 


A few years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Hy in Billingham at the age of 90 and he still had that “gleam in his eyes”. He was a real pioneer in our profession who raised it to a new level. He was honored by the Colorado Podiatric Medical Association a few years ago for his contributions to the profession. The profession has lost one of its finest, and his passing will leave a mark on the profession that he truly loved and lived. Rest in peace Hy.

I am shocked, and very saddened to read of Dr. Addante's passing. I just got an email from Joe about 2 weeks ago. He said he was well, wore reading glasses, used a cane, and soon might need a hearing aid, but he was still driving, and wanted to touch base with old friends. Then yesterday, the same day I read of his passing, I got a "LinkedIn Update" from him. Dr. Addante meant so much to so many podiatrists. We all owe a debt of gratitude to him for his many years of service to podiatry. He will be greatly missed. Our sympathy to his family.

RE: The Passing of Joseph B. Addante, DPM


From: Robert Chelin, DPM, Howard Dananberg, DPM


 


I always enjoyed my time spent with Joe talking about the state of the union of international podiatric politics. Joe was very supportive of the International podiatry movement and participated at many of the FIP world congresses either as a registrant or in an academic role. I always called on him for advice, and he was glad to offer his perspective. I found his thoughts on the profession most thought-provoking and inspirational. The global podiatric community will sadly miss him.


 


Robert Chelin DPM, Past President,  International Federation of Podiatrists (FIP)


 


I was one of Dr. Addante's first residents and knew him for over 40 years. He was both tough and caring, politically astute yet very civic-minded, and he loved educating the world about podiatry.  He saw foot surgery as an art form, himself as the artist, and the patients for whom he cared as extended family. His approach to practice was unique, and I benefited greatly from the time I spent with him. He will surely be missed.

The profession has lost one of its true gentlemen. Dr. Addante was a superior clinician and educator. He was compassionate and gave many hours to help so many people. He made a difference in the lives of so many people and will be missed. He was one of the finest individuals that I have ever known. Rest in Peace.


 


Arthur E. Helfand, DPM


 


Joseph Addante, DPM was one of my mentors and one of the most generous podiatric educators in the history of the profession. When I was Co-Chair of APMSA with Bryan Kerns in 1980, Joe was our liaison to the APMA and advisor to our organization. I spent a week with him in Fitchburg, MA when I was a senior at CCPM. I’ll never forget him reaching into his desk draw and tossing a Tupperware container to me and asking me what is was. It seemed to be filled with breakfast cereal, and when I suggested that, he told me they were metatarsal heads.


 


Joe worked at many state-run facilities, pioneered the removal of met heads as treatment for IPKs, and was published on the subject. He was beloved by podiatrists in his native country of Italy, and visited there often and taught them surgery. He was a warm and wonderful man, had a tough life with the premature and tragic loss of his two sons in 1997, and left an indelible mark on the profession that he loved.
