Among this year's professionals in the kidney community who have passed away, four deceased kidney disease leaders are acknowledged here for their contributions to nephrology. Nancy Spaeth, considered the longest surviving kidney patient in the world; Christopher Blagg, MD, a persistent advocate for dialysis; Dale Singer, MHA, an elegant force and knowledgeable executive; and Jerry Yee, MD, FASN, a generous mentor, have all been seminal figures in the field.
