In Memoriam

Marquette community will not forget Andrew “Keith” Carr, who died in June. He slipped and fell from a ledge on the banks of the Tiber River in Rome, where he was studying abroad. A junior majoring in operations and supply chain management, Carr was a recipient of Ignatius and Magis scholarships and frequently made the dean’s list. He was a member of Kappa Sigma and a participant on the university’s Quidditch team. As Father Pilarz remarked, “His light only graced this campus for a short time, but his memory will live in his family, his friends and our Marquette community forever.” Memorials in his name may be directed to the Sherrie Holley Library Memorial Fund; c/o Putnam County Community Foundation; 2 S. Jackson St.; Greencastle, Indiana, 46135.

The university mourns the loss of John “Jack” H. Crowley, Arts ’52, Grad ’56, longtime faculty member in the J. William and Mary Diederich College of Communication. Crowley, whose specializations were advertising and ethics in advertising, joined Marquette’s faculty on a part-time basis in 1958, became an assistant professor in 1986 and an associate professor with tenure in 1992. He died in March. He is survived by family and his wife of 60 years, Delores “Dee” Crowley.

Professor Emeritus Dr. Ralph E. Brownlee, Bus Ad ’47, former chair of marketing and namesake for the Ralph Brownlee International Student Atrium in the College of Business Administration, died in April. Brownlee joined Marquette’s faculty in 1949 and spent his entire career on campus teaching and influencing marketing students. After retiring in 1989, he continued teaching on a part-time basis. He is survived by his children, other family and friends. Memorials may be made to the Audrey and Ralph Brownlee Faculty Research Endowment Fund at Marquette University.
