Remembering Fr. Neenan

Remembering Fr. Neenan

William B. Neenan, S.J., a beloved Jesuit and accomplished administrator at Boston College for more than three decades, passed away on June 25 at the Jesuit residence in Roberts House.

As irreplaceable as he was irrepressibly joyful, he will always be remembered for his devotion to BC and its alumni family.

A funeral Mass for Fr. Neenan was held on Tuesday, July 1, at St. Ignatius Church. More than a thousand members of the BC family attended to honor their friend.

In gratitude for his life and service, the University and a generous donor have established The William B. Neenan, S.J., Memorial Scholarship. Should you wish to make a contribution in his memory, you may do so here or via mail:
