Dr. Rodulfo Prieto Cedraro

Friends and colleagues,

Our dear friend Rodulfo left us too soon. Those of us who knew him will always remember him as an honorable man who was dedicated to his family and his profession. He was a scholarly man who had many close friends around the world.

Rodulfo was passionate about education; he received a Bachelor of Applied Science in Geological and Geophysical Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University in 1980, a Geophysical Engineering degree from Universidad Central de Venezuela in 1983 and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Geological Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin in 1987. His research resulted in numerous publications. His work career began with Petrόleos de Venezuela S.A. where he held many leadership roles until 2003. As a result of his vast knowledge and strong work ethic his career path led to the position of Vice President and General Manager of Suelopetrol Corporation in Houston, Texas. In addition, he shared his knowledge with students at the Universidad Central de Venezuela where he taught for many years.

Rodulfo & Fisher Rodulfo Prieto Cedraro Memorial Excellence Endowment Benefitting the William L. Fisher Chair at The University of Texas at Austin. I am deeply honored by this enduring legacy that Rodulfo and I will share in perpetuity. I invite you to honor Rodulfo’s memory by contributing to this endowment, and I thank the generous individuals who have already given. Your donation in any amount will be acknowledged with a personalized card sent to his family on your behalf.

Members of The University of Texas at Austin family and I extend our deepest sympathy. Thank you for your consideration.
