Dr. Dan Krieg remembered for crop expertise, cheerful personality
A familiar name in the local agricultural community will stay that way.
Supporters of the late Dan Krieg plan to continue a scholarship in the late Texas Tech professor’s memory.
Krieg, a longtime faculty member in Tech’s department of plant and soil sciences, died June 18 from an illness. He was 72.
“I remember him as a good mentor,” said Peter Dotray, a weed scientist and former co-worker. “He was tough, but he was fair.”
Krieg began a 35-year career at Tech in 1970.
