Noetzel

A numbers man
Justin R. “Bud” Noetzel ’40, the brother of Arthur Noetzel, Ph.D., ’38, passed away Sept. 2. Noetzel, an Alumni Medal recipient, was a member of Alpha Sigma Nu. A CPA, he worked for The Philpott Rubber Co. and Buckeye Rubber & Packing Co. A graduate of Cathedral Latin High School, he was a retired partner of Peat Marwick Main & Co. in Cleveland. Noetzel, a loyal supporter of JCU, was active on several boards, including ones for the Center for Human Services, Marymount Health Care Systems, Philpott Rubber, Interior Steel Equipment, Van Dorn, and Buckeye Rubber & Packing. He also was on the finance committee of Gesu Church and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Brackley

A fighter for social justice
Rev. Dean Brackley, S.J., who started his career as an educator and community organizer in New York, passed away in El Salvador Oct. 16 in the company of his friends and Jesuit brothers. He struggled with cancer, and after chemotherapy treatments proved ineffective, he decided to return to his home in El Salvador. When six Jesuits were martyred at the University of Central America in November 1989, their Superior General was inundated with letters from Jesuits throughout the world offering to go to El Salvador in their stead. Fr. Brackley was one of the few sent to help. A visiting professor at John Carroll during spring semester of 2002, he lectured extensively in the U.S. and Europe and did much to continue the martyrs of El Salvador’s struggle for social justice.

Hall

Honored literature professor
Robert Hall ’56, a literature professor at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, died of lung cancer Oct. 1. He was 78. Hall, who was a member of Alpha Sigma Nu, was fluent in British literature, world literature, and literary criticism. His seminars explored Latin American and Russian literature, James Joyce, and religious and existential literature. Born in Lisbon, Ohio, he thought about the priesthood but decided to study literature instead. He did graduate work and taught at The Ohio State University. Before joining what’s now USF St. Petersburg in 1970, he taught at the University of Tampa. By his retirement in 2005, USF St. Petersburg honored him as its most outstanding professor several times. In 2006, he was named a fellow in the school’s Florida studies program.
