From Dr. David Wood, BioGenesis:

It was with great sadness that we learned the news that Riley Livingston, a friend of NWNPC and the Naturopathic profession, and cofounder of BioGenesis, passed away December 19th, 2012. Riley was truly generous to natural medicine in all of its forms, both financially and with the most precious of all commodities time. He was a very real visionary in this industry and his wonderful smile and great passion will be sorely missed.

Riley helped Naturopathic Physicians in countless ways. We are better doctors and people for having known him. Please accept our most sincere condolences, and extend our love and sympathy to his family.

Dr. Freeman Ken Harmon

Dr. Freeman Ken Harmon

Our community mourns the sudden passing of Dr. Freeman Ken Harmon, Saturday, November 5th, 2011. He was a beloved father, husband, physician, friend and a long time NWNPC Board member.

A memorial service was held on Sunday, November 13th, 2011 at Faith Church. In attendance were a dozen of Dr. Harmon’s colleagues, scores of his patients (including many children, some now all grown up, delivered by Ken), many, many friends and fellow church members, and his wife Sandy, his children and extended family.

NCNM had a nice profile of Dr. Harmon on page 3 of the NCNM Fall 2004 newsletter. It includes a history of his involvement in chiropractic and naturopathic medicine and shows just how much Ken cared about helping his patients, students and fellow colleagues.

We all will miss Ken, his passion for the naturopathic profession, and his love and friendship. Please keep his family in your prayers.
