In Memoriam: Friends

Holy Cross Magazine publishes In Memoriam to inform the College community of the deaths of alumni, Trustees, students, employees and friends. In Memoriam content, which is based on obituaries published in public forums or provided directly to HCM by the family, is limited to an overview of an individual’s life accomplishments, including service to alma mater and a survivors’ listing. Featured obituaries, labeled “Holy Cross Remembers,” are provided for faculty, senior administrators, Jesuits, honorary degree recipients and Trustees. Portrait photos from The Purple Patcher appear as space permits and at the discretion of the editor (photos provided by the deceased’s family are not accepted). Tributes appear in the order in which they are received; due to the volume of submissions and Magazine deadlines, it may be several issues before they appear in print. To notify the College of a death, please call the Alumni Office at 508-793-3039 or email, attaching a copy of an obituary, if available.
