It is with deep sorrow that Wagner College reports the death of Professor Zoltan Fulop early on the morning of Friday, Dec. 10, 2021. He was 76 years old. He passed very peacefully in the hospital with his family around him.
Zoltan taught neurophysiology and histology in our Department of Biological Sciences.
He was born May 14, 1945 in Csepel, a district that was incorporated into the city of Budapest, Hungary in 1950. He earned his master of science degree at Lomonosov Moscow State University in the USSR, his Ph.D. from Semmelweis University in Budapest, and his D.Sc. from Eotvos Lorand University, also in Budapest.
In 1990, Zoltan became a research professor at Rutgers University. He joined the Wagner College faculty in August 1998.
A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, March 5 at 9:30 a.m. in the Vanderhoven Chapel at Hazel Wood Cemetery, 64 Lake Ave., Colonia, N.J. According to the family, the plan is to gather in the chapel at 9:30, mingle for a while (15 to 20 minutes), then sit and allow those who wish to say their final goodbye. Shortly after 10:30, the group will carry Professor Fulop’s ashes from the chapel to their final resting place in the cemetery.
