It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Dr. Ralph B. Lind (1923 – 2016), at the age of 93. Dr. Lind was an area native who practiced large animal (farm animal) medicine prior to becoming one of the founders of Stark Animal Hospital, along with Dr. Len Firth and Dr. Robert Gonser. Dr. Lind practiced veterinary medicine in this area for 41 years, and was a partner, good friend, and councilor. We mourn his loss and will miss him deeply.
