Sadly, the osteopathic profession lost a treasured member with the passing of Donald J. Krpan, DO today. 


Dr. Krpan collapsed at his home early this morning and passed away in the hospital with family by his side. 


A 1967 graduate of the University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City, Missouri, Dr. Krpan was one of the first DOs to receive a California license following the Supreme Court decision reauthorizing osteopathic licensure in the state.  He enjoyed a varied career ranging from service in the US Air Force to private practice in Arizona and California, Provost of Western University of Health Sciences and COMP Dean, and most recently Executive Director of and consultant to the Osteopathic Medical Board of California.  Dr. Krpan was generous with his resources and tirelessly volunteered his services.  He served as President of both the American Osteopathic Association and OPSC. 


Dr. Krpan's booming personality and fiery passion for the osteopathic profession will be sorely missed. 


A funeral mass for Dr. Krpan will be held next Friday, January 12 at 10:00 am at Santa Clara de Asis in Yorba Linda, immediately followed by a lunch reception at the Yorba Linda Country Club.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Osteopathic Foundation, 142 East Ontario Street, Suite 1450, Chicago, IL  60611.
