Dr. Peter Aschaffenburg Leaves $100,000 to the OMS Foundation
The OMS Foundation recently received a $100,000 gift from the estate of Dr. Peter Aschaffenburg, who passed away in late 2015. Dr. Aschaffenburg became a Charter Member of the Robert V. Walker Society in 1999, and upgraded his commitment to $100,000 in 2011.
“I never felt so proud as to donate $10,000 to be a Charter Member of the R.V. Walker Society, and this was at a time when I was just an associate, with loans, etc. When Dr. Walker passed away, I bequeathed $100,000 to the OMS Foundation. The least of what I learned from Dr. Walker was oral and maxillofacial surgery. From him, I learned what it really meant to be a Doctor, and what it meant to be a Man,” said Dr. Aschaffenburg in an OMS Foundation article written about him in 2012.
