The Lynn community is saddened by the loss of Dr. J. Donald Wargo, a Lynn University board of trustees member from 1987–2008, who passed away Sept. 20, 2015.

“Don’s leadership and wise counsel served us for many years,” said Lynn President Kevin M. Ross. “We deeply appreciate how he helped shape our university into what it is today.”

Born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Wargo attended preparatory school at Valley Forge Military Academy and Allegheny College. After graduate study in cardiovascular physiology at the University of Minnesota, he received his M.D. from Temple University School of Medicine.

Wargo moved to Miami, Florida, in 1955 to complete an internship and residency, and specialty training in obstetrics and gynecology at Jackson Memorial Hospital. He established an OB-GYN practice in 1959 with offices in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, retiring in 1994. He served his country in the U.S. Army Medical Corps as chief of obstetrics and gynecology at the American Hospital in Paris, France.

Wargo was one of the 25 founding members of the medical staff of Boca Raton Regional Hospital, of which he was president from 1969–1971 and chief of surgery from 1975–1977. He served on the hospital’s board of trustees from 1972–1997.
