H. Wayne Carver II ’74 MD’77, 67, died December 26. Wayne discovered a passion for science and music at an early age. He received both his undergraduate and medical degrees from Brown, where he was the drum major of the marching band and played in three orchestras. It was at Brown that he met the love of his life and wife of 44 years, Deborah DeHertogh ’74 MD’77, in anatomy class.
He completed forensic training at the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office in Chicago and served as the chief medical examiner of Connecticut for 24 years. He strove to be impartial to both the prosecution and defense when called to testify, while always showing care and compassion to families in their time of need. (See Brown Medicine, Winter 2014.)
His sense of humor, themed Hawaiian shirts, passion for cooking, and oversized personality will always be fondly remembered. He is survived by his wife and two sons. Memorial contributions may be made to Sandy Hook Promise.
