RE: The Passing of Richard Eusanio, DPM


I'm sad to report the loss of a good friend and colleague, Richard Eusanio, DPM, to lymphoma. Richard practiced in Mesquite, TX, a Dallas suburb. He was honest and well-respected by his colleagues, dedicated to his family, practice, and patients, and will be missed.  


But what's up with podiatrists and lymphoma? Besides Drs. Goldsmith and Eusanio, I know of others. Are we breathing too much nail dust, phenol fumes, glutaraldehyde, skin adherent, and/or standing too close to our x-ray machines?

My sympathies to the Krauklis family in the passing of Robert (Always Bob to me!). Bob and I served together at several Navy training bases rendering podiatric care to military personnel.  We met up periodically in Chicago, Illinois for the Midwest Podiatry conferences as well. He was a devoted military officer and was well respected for his podiatric skills. He helped many of our warriors remain functional on their feet. May the Almighty watch over his loving family.

It is with great sorrow that I heard of the passing of our colleague Harry Goldsmith. I knew him to be a gentleman and an outstanding colleague. He was a tremendous asset to APMA and the profession. I knew Harry as a friend whom I had the honor to serve with on APMA's health policy committee. He was selfless with his time and the commitment he made to his colleagues. I will remember him dearly, and grieve for his family in their loss, and for our profession's loss.
