This week, the Boston College community mourned the loss of Fr. William B. Neenan, SJ, a beloved Jesuit and an accomplished administrator who served in several key leadership positions during more than three decades at the school. Fr. Neenan passed away on June 24, 2014 at the age of 85.
Fr. Neenan was remembered by many as the “pastor of the campus,” constantly engaging students, alumni and all those he encountered with his wit and charm. He received several awards in recognition of his service to the Boston College community and his contributions to Jesuit education.
