Popular St. Ann’s History teacher Rev. Victor Marchioro died yesterday according to a former student. One St. Ann’s alum posts this homage in a Facebook group dedicated to his memory:
Victor Marchioro always defined – and continues to define for me – the very best about Saint Ann’s, the spirit of the humanities, and the vocation of teaching (to this day, whenever I am stumped by a question in class or at a talk, if I let my mind wander I can still picture him standing in 8-1 shaking his head and saying “my my, how the mighty have fallen”). I learned more from him, both by number of hours in class and in terms of range and depth of content, than any other teacher I ever had. He will be missed by many and, “by the bowels of Christ”, forgotten by none.
