Patrick C. McKenry, deceased, was Professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the Ohio State University. His research focused on families and stress, with particular interest in family conflict and violence, postdivorce adjustment, variations in coping by gender and race, and the role of conflict and violence in the coparenting process after divorce. He published extensively in the marriage and family literature and coauthored or coedited with Sharon Price Divorce, Families Across Time: A Life Course Perspective, and all three editions of Families and Change: Coping with Stressful Events and Transitions. He was a member of the American Sociological Association and the National Council on Family Relations, where he has held several leadership positions. He was also the recipient of three Ohio State University awards for excellence in teaching and research. He received his Ph.D. at the University of Tennessee and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Georgia.
