Frederick W. Danker dies

2 Comment(s) +
I understand from an e-mail chain from Terry Falla that the eminent lexicographer Frederick W. Danker died today around noon local time. His memorial service is Saturday 18 Feb, 2 p.m., at Bethel Lutheran Church, 7001 Forsyth Blvd., St. Louis, MO, 63105.


  1. Rod Decker has some comment here:

  2. People at the seminary called him "Red Fred." He touchingly ended his forward to the third edition of BDAG by thanking God "in full awareness that numerous lexicons remain unfinished as monuments to human fragility."
