In Memoriam: Christopher Roark

On April 23, 2013, the Department of English hosted an event, coinciding with Shakespeare’s birthday, to celebrate the life of Dr. Christopher Roark, Associate Professor of English and ardent Shakespearean, who passed away unexpectedly on June 15, 2012.

As part of the event, a book of remembrances of Dr. Roark, collected from the JCU community, was shared with his widow, Amy, and their children, Owen, Vincent, and Rosalind.
