Marian College Remembers a Beloved Faculty Member - 1/11/2008

Roy Pille, one of the college’s most valued and dedicated faculty members, died on January 2 in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, following a brief illness. He was 93.

Colonel Pille had a long and full life. The youngest of five children, he was the first to earn a high school degree, and he later earned master’s degrees in education and business administration. He competed in track and field in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, and he was a veteran of WWII and Vietnam. He dedicated many years of his life to coaching children in track and field, particularly through Special Olympics.

  He taught business administration at Marian College from 1966 until he retired from teaching in 1980 and, from 1968 to 1970, he was the dean of students. He also coached golf at the college.

  Colonel Pille and his wife of 41 years, who died in 1981, had two daughters; both of them graduated from Marian College. One of his daughters, Mary Pille Gutierrez, died in 2005, and his other daughter, Judith Pille Castaldi is a dear friend of the college. Judith and her husband, David, recently established the Dean Roy F. and Virginia S. Pille Endowed Scholarship in honor of Colonel Pille and his wife.
