A Message to Our Wisconsin Pharmacy Family
It is with great sadness that we share with you the news that PSW Executive Vice President & CEO Chris Decker passed away after an inspiring journey living with glioblastoma. Chris’s legacy and mentorship will live on in PSW and across the country and his smile will live on in the hearts of his friends and colleagues near and far.
The outpouring of support for Chris, his family, and for the Wisconsin Pharmacy Family has been amazing.
Information about arrangements is available here.
In collaboration with Chris’s colleagues across the country, the Wisconsin Pharmacy Foundation has invited those close to Chris and those inspired by Chris to designate a one-time gift to the Foundation to celebrate Chris’s contributions to pharmacy. Over $80,000 has been contributed to this special effort since it began in mid-June. In conjunction with this tribute, the PSW Board of Directors has resolved to dedicate a new patio space at the PSW office as “The Deck.” This networking and event space, conceived through Chris’s vision, will serve as a lasting place for the Wisconsin Pharmacy Family to come together, network, mentor, collaborate, and inspire one another.

We are so blessed to have been touched by such an inspirational and positive person.
