chaffin picThe School of Law regrets to share news of the passing of Callaway Chair Emeritus Verner F. Chaffin (LL.B.’42), who served on the law school’s faculty for more than 30 years. Specializing in the areas of wills, trusts, estate planning and future interests, Chaffin passed away on April 27, just a few months shy of the age of 100. This remarkable scholar, teacher, alumnus and mentor will be sorely missed by the entire law school community and all those whose lives he touched throughout the years. He is survived by his wife of 74 years, Ethel Tison Chaffin; daughter Ethel Chaffin Simonetti; daughter Mary Chaffin (J.D.’82); son V. Frank Chaffin; son John Chaffin and five grandchildren.
