Kenneth E. Salyer, M.D.
On behalf of the board of directors, medical directors, and staff of the World Craniofacial Foundation, I am deeply saddened to announce that the world has lost a giant of a man, and we have lost a great friend.
Dr. Ken Salyer died peacefully December 28 at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas of complications following a stroke. He was surrounded as he passed by the love of his wife Luci and his son and daughter.
Ken’s gifts will live on in the smiles of those he touched, and those who knew him.
