Hafner M.D., John N.

Jack Hafner died in Baptist Hospital Palliative Care on Saturday, April 28, 2018 in Louisville, Kentucky.

He was the past associate professor of ophthalmology at the University of Louisville, from which he graduated in 1961. He was a member of the Kentucky Association of Eye Physicians and Surgeons, The Greater Louisville Medical Society, The Kentucky Medical Association and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He was past president of the Louisville Academy of Ophthalmology, The American Medical Association, and last, but far from the least, the American Motorcycle Association.

The family feels that a contribution to the Baptist Foundation Palliative Care to help continue the loving care Jack received would be a very fitting way to remember him (4000 Kresge Way, Louisville, KY 40207).
