I knew the Padre from birth, since my dad was in administration at Queen's all through the '50s. I can recall 'Marsh', as my parents called him, and Frances at our home on Earl Street in those years. They were like old friends when I returned to Kingston in 1968 to begin student life at Queen's. My husband Dave and I were married by the Padre in the Queen's Chapel in May of 1973 - assisted by Franklin Banister who had christened me at Chalmers Church in 1951. All of us who knew the Padre are blessed. This is the passing of another of the great, timeless Queen's characters.
