Fr. Matt Creighton, S.J.

The Department mourns the loss of our emeritus colleague, Fr. Matthew E. Creighton, S.J. He died Friday, 23 November 2018, at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland in Pontiac, Michigan, aged 91. Fr. Creighton taught Greek and Latin for the Department from 1967-1978, as well as serving in several administrative capacities including Chairman of the Department. After serving as Creighton University's 21st President from 1978-1981, Fr. Creighton returned to Loyola and served as Executive Assistant Chancellor and Assistant Vice President, before returning again to the teaching he loved, in the Department, from 1987 until he retired in 2008. He was a wise and generous colleague.
