Former Colorado State University-Pueblo President Ronald Applbaum has died of complications from cancer.
President Joseph Garcia said in an e-mail to faculty and staff that the 62-year-old died at his home Thursday.
Applbaum served four years as president at CSU Pueblo.
He stepped down as president this past summer, after announcing in October 2005 that he would resign when his contract expired.
He took a sabbatical this fall but planned to return to teaching in the spring.
Survivors include his wife, Sue, and a son.
